Tigers Jaw Covers The Cure's 'In Between Days' for Kevin Devine Split: Exclusive
Tuesday, we're in love.
All year long, indie singer-songwriter Kevin Devine has been teaming up with other artists for what he punnily calls the Devinyl Splits series. Today, Billboard premieres a new track from Devinyl Split number three -- a jaunty cover of the Cure's "In Between Days" from the Scranton, Penn. band Tigers Jaw. Check it out below:
On the flipside of the new single, Kev-Dev offers another cover -- a take on their appropriately-titled timeless love song, "Lovesong."
"When we were talking with Kevin about what to do for the split, one of the things he suggested was to cover different songs from the same artist," the band's Brianna Collins tells Billboard. "The Cure has been a band that I've always loved and I thought that we could both find songs that we could make our own. Admittedly I always gravitate toward love songs, and "In Between Days" is one of my all-time favorites."
The vinyl split is available for pre-order here. It comes out Sept. 11 via Bad Timing Records. Here's the artwork:
Previously, the split series has included Nada Surf's Matthew Caws and Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves trading songs with Devine. Stay tuned to see what the rest of the series holds in store; Devine has promised three more for the calendar year.
