Snail Mail covers “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World” by Courtney Love (not that one): Stream

on October 19, 2018, 11:19am

Snail Mail, the CoSigned musical endeavor of teenage wunderkind Lindsey Jordan, has shared a new song via the Amazon Originals series. It’s a cover of “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World”, a song by Courtney Love, the band, not the Hole singer.

Yes, in the early ’90s, Olympia’s K Records hosted a collaboration between Lois Maffeo and Pat Maley called Courtney Love. They released a few 7-inches, including 1990’s Uncrushworthy, from which Jordan pulled the song. Jordan’s cover is characteristically spare, with Jordan’s cracking, wounded vocals joined only by her electric guitar.

Snail Mail’s got tour dates lined up through early next year, with Jordan playing gigs throughout the U.K. and Europe before bringing the sounds of this year’s wonderful Lush back to the States. See her full itinerary below.
