Published Sep 05, 2018Speedy Ortiz are about to accompany Liz Phair on her upcoming North American tour, and to mark the occasion, the band have covered one of her lesser-known tunes.
Sadie Dupuis and co. have unveiled a rendition of "Blood Keeper," which is an outtake from the 1998 LP Whitechocolatespaceegg. The song was supposedly intended for the Scream 2 soundtrack, but never ended up in the film.
Dupuis explained her decision to cover the song, by revealing the first DM she ever sent Phair: "thanks much for saying hi, it means a lot!! scream tv series made me remember 'blood keeper.' vague plans to record it gary numan style haha."
It's not particularly Numan-esque, but you can hear Dupuis and the rest of Speedy Ortiz's rendition of "Blood Keeper" below.
