PJ HARVEY Covers LEONARD COHEN

21 August 2022

Fabulous songstress PJ HARVEY shared her cover
of the LEONARD COHEN musing WHO BY FIRE.

It’ll feature on the soundtrack for a new dark
comedy/thriller series, named Bad Sisters
for Apple TV+

The late genial Cohen wrote/recorded the song in
1974 for his album New Skin for the Old Ceremony.

PJ Harvey: “It was a very enjoyable day spent recording the version of Leonard Cohen’s
“Who By Fire” for Bad Sisters. I had spoken to Sharon Horgan in advance of the recording session, so I understood why she felt the song’s lyric was so perfect for the series, but also understood what nuances of Leonard’s performance she most loved, and therefore what
to try and recapture but in my own way.”
