The HBO true crime docu-series I’ll Be Gone in the Dark chronicles the meticulous investigation into the Golden State Killer from late author/true crime expert Michelle McNamara. The series is a gripping account of the intense effort McNamara put into her pursuit of the truth, and the series features a cover of Leonard Cohen‘s “Avalanche,” performed by Aimee Mann.

On Friday, Mann officially released the cover to digital platforms, and it’s both haunting and gorgeously composed. Stream it below:

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark also focuses on McNamara’s book she was writing about her search for the Golden State Killer, and how her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, continued her journey in finishing the book after McNamara died in 2016.

Said Aimee Mann of how she became involved with the show and, ultimately, recording the cover:

“My husband, Michael Penn, and I had been close friends with Patton and Michelle for many years and were very familiar with the ups and downs of her research. We were completely devastated by her death. I was incredibly moved by Patton’s dedication to getting her book finished and was so happy when he reached out about recording a version of ‘Avalanche’ for the show. Michael produced and recorded it at home, and we were both honored to hear it at the start of every episode.”
