My Love Will Follow Me is the new EP (out next month) from brooklyn hipster babes, Vivian Girls. Interestingly, the b-side to the lead single is a cover of “He’s Gone”, the killer Chantels song supposedly written by a 16-year-old Arlene Smith, the group’s lead singer in 1957. Both versions below.

The Vivian Girls’ cover is slower and aesthetically hollow sounding, but the harmonies at the end (which the group is “moving towards”) are pretty impressive.

“He’s Gone” was a big hit single for the Chantels in late ’50s, recorded on End Records. Classic material !

The cover sounds fine – until one hears the OG – game over. Thanks for sharing a great song!

He sounds like a prtety happy guy, a somewhat different tone than the VF interview. Always so good to hear his voice. I also wish the interview could have been longer. Just never get enough of Rob
