This past June saw Pete Yorn reunite with actress Scarlett Johansson for an EP called Apart. The indie singer-songwriter returns today with a new collaboration and guest partner in the Liz Phair, who is about to hit the road on one of the season’s more anticipated tours. Their joint release is a cover of the Pixies classic “Here Comes Your Man”.
In a statement (via SPIN), Yorn commented on the Pixies’ 1989 original: “It was one of those songs that stopped me in my tracks when I first heard it back in the day. It informed my sense of melody in a big way and I always wanted to sing it.”
Yorn and Phair’s rendition is fairly faithful but nonetheless fun. Hear it below.
Earlier this year, Phair released her huge Girly-Sound to Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Box Set, which featured a remastered version of the ’90s record as well as the first ever restored audio re-releases of the three demo cassettes Phair made under her Girly-Sound moniker.
