Peter Buck Joins First Aid Kit for “Walk Unafraid” Cover

Swedish sisters' version of R.E.M. deep cut featured in the film "Wild"

First Aid Kit, featuring the Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg, put their own haunting, folky take on “Walk Unafraid,” a song from the 1998 R.E.M. album Up, for the soundtrack of Wild, the film starring Reese Witherspoon. The official video, released back in November, was shot in Portland, Oregon, near where R.E.M.’s Peter Buck lives, and while visiting on set, he accompanied the young musicians on an acoustic version of the song. The Wild soundtrack also features Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel and Portishead.
