Hear Snail Mail cover Courtney Love’s “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World” Mary Kang for The Fader

Since releasing her terrific debut album Lush back in June, Snail Mail's been touring her suburban slowcore all over the world. One of the staples of her recent live sets has been a cover of "The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World" by Courtney Love— the K Records duo that made waves in Olympia in the early 90s, not the Hole frontwoman. For her contribution to the Amazon singles series, she recorded a studio version of the cover. Jordan's version slows the song down, parsing its emotional arcs. Stream it below.
