Sharon Van Etten: The End of the World

As part of the soundtrack for “The Man In The High Castle,” comes Sharon Van Etten’s gorgeous cover version of one of the most beloved songs ever: “The End of The World.” Originally recorded in 1962 by Skeeter Davis, the heartbreaking song has been covered many, many times in the past (in Portuguese, Finnish and Cantonese; and by everybody from The Carpenters to Lana Del Rey) but Van Etten’s take doesn’t just add to the noise—rather, it’s a tender, sublime and ultimately vulnerable version that tugs at the heartstrings.
