The singer also debuts the cover album artwork.

Frankie Rose previously announced a cover album of The Cure’s Seventeen Seconds, out Oct. 27 exclusively to Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious, a monthly vinyl subscription service where artists solely cover their favorite LPs front to back. Today (Oct. 25), Billboard premieres her second cover from the album, "At Night." 

The guitars are a bit less crunchy, and tones have a sort of woozy echo that brings the 1980 song into 2017. Rose stays quite loyal to the original track, though, only tweaking these small things to offer it a sense of modernity.

"'At Night' is a favorite off of the original album," Rose told Billboard. "I tried to change as little as possible, giving it a only slightly more modern fidelity. How can you mess with the perfection of the original without destroying it? It's my best offering."

Listen to the cover below.

The vinyl will be limited to 1000 copies. Pre-order before the Oct. 27 release here, and check out the never-before-seen album artwork below.
