In preparation for Band of Horses' upcoming tour with opener Jason Lytle, Horses' singer Ben Bridwell and the Grandaddy frontman just dropped a collaborative Townes Van Zandt cover. Listen to it below: Bridwell and Lytle turn out a full-bodied version of Van Zandt's characteristically understated folk lament, "Don't You Take It Too Bad."

If you're a fan of Van Zandt, Band of Horses or Grandaddy, consider this track a must-listen. And if you're seeing Lytle opening for Band of Horses in November or December, don't be surprised if they take the stage together to pay tribute to one of country-folk's late greats.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
