The always enigmatic Fever Ray, aka Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife, has added a cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street”to their recorded, studio work.  The single, which was announced simply with the mysterious image above, is set for release on September 14th as a digital download through Mute in the US and Canada.

If you can’t wait until September, London’s NME.com has snagged an exclusive 24-hour download of the track so grab it while you can or stream the track by visiting http://soundcloud.com/fever-ray/mercy-street.

“It’s an interpretation of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Mercy Street’,” says Andersson. “We made it more intense and faster to fit our eccentric percussionists and energetic live musicians. It is a monotone track but we worked with the dynamics trying to make it sparkle. I listened to it a lot when I was around 15, and it still moves me. It made me start reading Anne Sexton too.”
