Japanese Breakfast covered Brandi Carlile’s “The Story.” Frontwoman Michelle Zauner and company recorded the song for The North Face’s “It’s More Than A Jacket” campaign.

“The Story” originally appears on Carlile’s 2007 album of the same name. “It was a joy to take on the iconic ballad, ‘The Story,’” Zauner said, as per Pitchfork. “I think the song captures the depths of human tenacity and the spirit of the journey so well. We wanted to keep our rendition sparse and acoustic. A beautiful string arrangement written by Craig Hendrix and performed by our violinist, Molly Germer, and Quartet 121 soars in to sweep you up to the mountains.”
