Description

Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—released Mountain Man Sings Fiona Apple, featuring its version of “Hot Knife,” from Apple’s 2012 album, The Idler Wheel..., on February 17, 2021. The song is the latest release in Mountain Man’s series of cover singles, which also includes the band’s versions of the English folk song “Greensleeves,” Neil Young’s “Through My Sails,” the Shaker hymn “Simple Gifts,” Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn,” Wilco’s “You and I,” John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” and the Irving Berlin holiday classic “White Christmas.” Last year, Nonesuch released Mountain Man’s live album, Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle.

"If we followed Questlove's advice and made gratitude lists before we went to bed every night," the trio says, "Fiona Apple would be at the top every time. She tells the truth like no one else does. Thank you, Fiona Apple. We love you."

The cover has become a fan-favorite staple of the band’s live set, with Glide magazine describing a 2018 performance of it in Brooklyn as “three voices colliding and weaving like a sensual fever dream.”
