This whole week, SPIN is premiering a different track from Burger Records’ upcoming tribute album to the Velvet Underground’s White Light/White Heat. We’ve already unveiled Natural Child’s cover of “White Light/White Heat,” the Memories’ version of “The Gift,” and Mozes and the Firstborn’s take on “Lady Godiva’s Operation.” Now we’re sharing Curtis Harding’s gospel-informed, horn-filled rendition of the normally meditative “Here She Comes Now.” Stream Harding’s homage below, and scroll further for SPIN’s extensive coverage of the late, great Lou Reed.
