Neil Young has given his blessing for his classic song Heart of Gold to be recorded by Tavi Gevinson and included in Cadaver, an animated short film that Gevinson is starring in alongside Christopher Lloyd and Kathy Bates. Jonah D. Ansell wrote the script and directed the film that debuts at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. It tells the story of an elderly cadaver (Lloyd) who wakes up to say goodbye to his wife, only to discover a truth in death he didn’t know in life. Gevinson is the 15-year old fashion blogger icon who has stepped up to the animated film. Young has only allowed his 1972 song to be rerecorded a few times by the likes of Jimmy Buffett.
