Chromatics have shared a cover of Hole’s “Petals,” a song originally found on the Courtney Love-fronted band’s 1998 album Celebrity Skin. Chromatics’ version comes from the soundtrack to the Netflix movie The Perfection, a horror/thriller starring Allison Williams (Girls, Get Out) as a cellist. The film premiered last Friday and the song circulated the Internet over the long weekend. Check it out below.

There is no word yet on when Chromatics’ long delayed new album, Dear Tommy, will be released. Back in February they shared a video for a new song, “Time Rider” (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and announced a full North American tour (which is underway now).

Chromatics were supposed to release Dear Tommy in 2015 (it was announced in December 2014). Then frontman Johnny Jewel had a near-death experience in Hawaii on Christmas Day 2015 and afterwards he destroyed all copies of Dear Tommy in order to re-record it to better capture the sound he was going for. It was then announced that it would come out last fall, but that never happened. Last year the band shared videos for the new songs “Black Walls” (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and “Blue Girl.”

Last year Jewel also released a whole separate album, Themes for Television, which was partly inspired by Twin Peaks. And the band surprise released a brand new EP, Camera, that was a vinyl-only release, there was no digital stream or download.
