The singer crooned the song, a highlight from 1972’s Harvest, over jagged acoustic strums. He offered a touch of melisma to the folk-rock track, with two backing vocalists — including frequent collaborator Ian Isiah — adding subtle harmonies.
Hynes’ Coachella slot also included a version of the Blood Orange track “Hope” with guest spots from Tei Shi and Lil Yachty, the latter decked out in a Weezer T-shirt. (The studio version features Diddy, who joined Ariana Grande for a cameo during her set at the festival.)
