Dirty Beaches: "The Singer" (Johnny Cash Cover)

Scottish record shop Soft Power recently launched a record label with a 180-gram piece of wax by Theoretical Girls. But we're more excited about their second release, a split 7" with trans-Pacific nomad Alex Zhang Hungtai (aka Dirty Beaches) and Conor Prendergast of Brave Radar. Dirty Beaches' A-side is a cover of Johnny Cash's "The Singer" (also famously covered by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and also features an instrumental titled "Gone to Hell Come Friday" dedicated to the memory of Broadcast's Trish Keenan. Light your last cigarette and thumb a ride down this twisted highway. --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones

MP3: Dirty Beaches: "The Singer (Johnny Cash Cover)"

Dirty Beaches/Conor Prendergast 7" is due soon on Soft Power. More at Soundcloud.
