Simon Neil and co. have taken on the record’s opening track for the album ‘Tiny Changes’, as has Julien Baker. Take a listen to both versions below.
The plans for the cover album were announced earlier this week, which also features The Twilight Sad, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, Death Cab For Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard, and a duet between Aaron Dessner (The National) & Lauren Mayberry (CHVRCHES).
Biffy Clyro have taken on ‘The Modern Leper’ before. In December the Scottish trio treated fans to a live cover when they appeared at a tribute to late Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison.
‘Tiny Changes’ is out on July 12 via Atlantic Records. As previously noted, Hutchison was involved in curating the artists involved before his death last year.
