“Such a great song,” Clark wrote in the caption of the Instagram video of the cover. Hers was a faithful take on the original, soft and acoustic. Watch it down below.

In the lead-up to MASSEDUCTION’s release, both Clark and Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein teamed up for a series of unusual interviews. Clark also appeared on Portlandia alongside Brownstein a number of times.

In related news, Brownstein’s memoir, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, will soon be adapted by Hulu. Sleater-Kinney are “very slowly” working on a new record, the follow-up to the 2015 comeback album, No Cities to Love.
