Here's Chromatics' new cover of Neil Young's "Into the Black"—actually, judging by the lyrics of the first verse, they are covering "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)," the opening acoustic track on Young's 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps, and not the electric "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" that closes it. Nitpicking, I know; they are essentially the same song except for the lyrics in the opening verse.
At any rate, Chromatics do a fine job, offering a silkiness that's nowhere in Young's version, emphasizing the guitar line and giving it a goth-ballad melancholy that suits the song perfectly. Alberto Rossini did the video above, natch, and you can download the track here. It's the opening track off Chromatics' new album Kill for Love, which is scheduled to come out tomorrow on Italians Do It Better/Echo Park Records.
