Laura Marling Covers Ryan Adams: “My Winding Wheel”

One of the most pleasant collaborative surprises of last year was when Laura Marling, a longtime Ryan Adams fan who once cited his name in a single, and Adams, who recently revealed that his return to the studio was inspired in part by hearing Marling’s sophomore LP, anointed their mutual appreciation with a duet at Abbey Road. While we’ve yet to hear a Marling cover from Adams, that wasn’t her first public take on his work, as she put a rare “Answering Bell” demo to tape many years back. Now comes a great version of Heartbreaker cut “My Winding Wheel,” a cover she’s been testing in various live sets for a bit now that only just surfaced in decent, audience-recorded form thanks to AILLM. So, without further ado, enjoy audio of her faithful live take at The Forum in Melbourne, Australia above.
