New Jersey punk rockers The Gaslight Anthem have recorded an acoustic cover of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love." The track originally appeared on Bon Iver's 2007 debut For Emma, Forever Ago. The Gaslight Anthem has recorded the song as part of a three song EP that will be released on red vinyl on November 24 to coincide with Black Friday. Aside from "Skinny Love" the EP will contain the previously unreleased songs "Hold You Up," and "Misery."
It is going to be interesting to hear what The Gaslight Anthem can do with "Skinny Love." The two bands are far apart in the musical spectrum, but these kind of crazy mash-ups have a tendency to yield some really interesting results.
The Gaslight Anthem are currently on tour in the U.K. through October 20.
