This cover of REM’s song¬†”Walk Unafraid,” by the Swedish band First Aid Kit, has me longing to take to the hills this morning.

It’s from the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (etc)–and starring Reese Witherspoon.

The lyrics are gorgeous, the melody stunning, and this version has me reaching for my hiking boots NOW.
