Mastodon Team Up With Feist For Special Release

(Gibson) In perhaps the most unlikely musical pairing since …well, ever, Mastodon and Canadian singer-songwriter Feist have partnered up to offer an exclusive split seven-inch single to celebrate Record Store Day on April 21.

This is no mere "slap a Feist song on one side and a Mastodon tune on the other" offering though: the disc features Feist covering Mastodon's "Black Tongue" while the Atlanta progressive-metallers perform Feist's "A Commotion."

The collaboration came about after the two acts performed on the same episode of the BBC television program Later… With Jools Holland. Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor recently told Sweden's Metalshrine,"It's fun for us. I mean, most times we end up doing covers of bands that are already sort of heavy or that is already in that vein, like the Melvins, Thin Lizzy, Metallica, you know what I mean? What are you gonna do to those songs to make them your own? …You don't really wanna mess with it. With Feist, it's something that we could really play with and do something different with." more on this story
