Earlier in the year Canadian indie-rocker Leslie Feist and metal giants Mastodon collaborated some cover tracks with eachother for Record Store Day. The two artists took on the challenge to put a new spin on eachother’s songs, spitting out one of the most unique collaborations to date.
Now the split single for Feist’s track A Commotion will get a digital release, and to promote it, an interactive video (below) let’s you cross fade between the original version sung by Feist, and the cover version re-done by Mastodon. This allows you to either listen to both on their own, or sit somewhere around the middle of the two.
Feist released her fourth studio album Metals in October last year, which she toured Australia with on the Laneway Festival lineup. While Mastodon released their fifth studio album The Hunter, which also saw them visit Australia for Soundwave.
