Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit have already covered Jack White and R.E.M. this year. Now they’re covering another tune from the modern American songbook — a song about America, in fact. The Söderberg sisters recorded Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” and teamed with Simon Gozzi to direct one of those videos that ties together scenes from on tour (from American tour, specifically, because “America”). Watch below.
“America” will be released on a Record Store Day exclusive 10″ on Black Friday, 11/28, via Columbia. The record also includes the unreleased track “Brother” and acoustic versions of two songs from this year’s Stay Gold.
