Nada Surf covers Spoon, Depeche Mode, Kate Bush for new LP

on February 24, 2010, 12:05pm

A little while back, we told you about Nada Surf‘s ambitious plan to record covers of Depeche Mode, Moody Blues, and The Soft Pack for a brand new album. As it turns out, that’s only a fraction of what will be heard on the June 8th release of the super eclectic if i had a hi-fi. Also included on the 12-track effort? Renditions of Spoon’s “The Agony of Lafitte”, Kate Bush’s “Love and Anger”, Arthur Russell’s “Janine”, and Bill Fox’s “Electrocution” (we got a preview of that one fore you below).

The one downside is we have to wait until June 8th for the release. Well, that is unless you’ll be attending anyone of Nada Surf’s upcoming tour dates, where if i had a hi-fi will initially be available for released. Talk about an added benefit!
