Back in May, The Jesus and Mary Chain teamed up with none other than Sky Ferreira for a performance of ‘The Two Of Us’ on Colbert. If you wanted it to be more than just a fleeting meeting of minds though, you’re in luck.
The Scottish icons have shared a brand new studio version of the track, taken from their album ‘Damage and Joy’, which also features Sky instead of Isobel Campbell. Much like the original performance, it’s a scuzzy version where they trade verses on a track that manages to be both sweet and sour.
Next month, The Jesus and Mary Chain are set to head off on a UK tour. It’ll kick off in Norwich on the 19th and round off in Cardiff on 3rd October. Tickets are on sale now.
