HURT from Nine Inch Nails Gets a Beautiful Bardcore Cover by Hildegard von Blingin’

From Hildegard von Blingin’:

Greetings all! I’m back with another bardcore cover, which in some ways is a cover of a cover. Hurt was written by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, and famously covered by Johnny Cash only 7 months before his death. I’m throwing my hat in the ring with a somewhat unusual take on the theme, but had to stop myself from bawling while recording even with the altered lyrics. Some of the words resisted change of any kind. No matter the context, this song gets you right in the human frailty.

And here is the original as sung by Johnny Cash. I never get tired of hearing this one, and the older I get, the harder it hits.
