Watch Joanna Newsom cover Sandy Denny's "The North Star Grassman And The Ravens"

Joanna Newsom has recorded a cover of Sandy Denny's 1971 song, “The North Star Grassman And The Ravens".

Newsom recorded the song in November as part of a promotional campaign for Wren, the Los Angeles-based fashion collection of Melissa Coker.

Newsom said of the track and the creative collaboration it inspired. "Aesthetically, [Sandy Denny's] songs are really inspiring to me—they’re really bold strokes that feel sort of theatrical and they’re interested in story, The fashion and design that I’m interested in also has to do with story, very strong statements that have some sort of narrative to them, that they aren’t just interested in the now."

Newsom's last studio album was Have One On Me in 2010.
