Singer Dorothy tells BlastEcho her favorite song you’ve never heard (even though you probably have):

“Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” by Nirvana

Nirvana just brought a whole new energy to the [Lead Belly] song. The fact that they were a grungy rock band, but then Kurt [Cobain] had this sensitive singer-songwriter side. He could get on the acoustic and be so vulnerable and raw. I just relate to him a lot. I don’t know why. He’s definitely one of my influences.

I just bought a memorial vinyl Lead Belly record. I spent a stupid amount of money on it but I was like, ‘I have to have that.’ It’s one of those vinyls that you’ll never see again if you don’t snag it.
