We heard Telekinesis' cover of 'This Time Tomorrow' by The Kinks a few weeks back, and now Juliana Hatfield is streaming her contribution to the Wes Anderson tribute LP, a cover of Elliott Smith's 'Needle in the Hay'. It was in Anderson's film The Royal Tenenbaums and Hatfield adds a few of her own flourishes including some drums and an organ, but mainly keeps to the melancholy heart and soul of the song that was present in the original.

She recently spoke to Paste about the cover, confessing that she's a bit of a Smith superfan: “I have written three fan letters in my life, One was to Paul Westerberg, one to the band X—both written when I was a teenager—and later, when I was in my twenties, I wrote to Elliott Smith at Kill Rock Stars.” Stream her cover below and pick up I Saved Latin! A Tribute to Wes Anderson when it drops on 13 May.
