Minnie Driver is part of a grand tradition of actors who’ve tried their hand in the music industry. (It’s always a hit.) She’s had some limited success with two albums of mostly original songs, and this October, she’ll release a covers collection that includes her takes on songs by Elliott Smith, The Cure, Neil Young, and more. Both Smith and Driver had their lives changed by Good Will Hunting, so it’s only appropriate that we offer you this smoky cover of Smith’s “Waltz #2 (XO),” which debuted via Pop Candy yesterday, and ask how you like them apples. Ask Me To Dance will be out in October.
