DIIV, who just released a new album, have just shared an acoustic cover of Elliott Smith‘s “Ballad of Big Nothing” which they recorded for HERO magazine’s HERO sessions series. Zachary Cole Smith also mentions that his girlfriend Sky Ferreira gave him a guitar that Elliott Smith once owned as a gift. Watch the video, along with an older video of Zachary and Sky playing Elliott’s “A Distorted Reality is Now a Necessity to be Free” at an Elliott Smith tribute show back in 2013, below.
