Video: Florence & the Machine – “Not Fade Away” (Buddy Holly Cover)

June 2, 2011

Another cut — following a promising Modest Mouse take on “That’ll Be the Day” — off the new star-studded Rave On Buddy Holly tribute album arrived today as an official video for Florence and the Machine’s soulful version of “Not Fade Away.” Check out the clip, which includes performance footage from the studio, above, and head over to Nowness for some commentary on various tracks by co-producer Randall Poster.

For example: “Lou [Reed] couldn’t understand why everyone didn’t want to do ‘Peggy Sue.’ That was his take on it. Lou was like, ‘I mean it’s the best song! Peggy Sue! Peggy Sue made an impression on me.’”
