Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Violent Femmes. After 25 years, the band rerecorded a version of their track “I’m Nothing” for their new record Hotel Last Resort.
“We’re kind of like jazz musicians or folk musicians,” bassist Brian Ritchie said in a statement. “We don’t really see the harm in revisiting a song or doing a new version. So here’s Stefan, coming from the outside and having such enthusiasm for ‘I’m Nothing,’ we thought it was a good time to revisit it and invited him to help out on the vocals. He was so enthusiastic about it, it was like he was floating on clouds while he was in the studio.”
Listen to “I’m Nothing” below and let us know what you think!
