Published Apr 09, 2012Record Store Day (April 21) is under two weeks away, and one of the most interesting releases on the docket is no doubt the split seven-inch between Feist and those burly dudes in Mastodon. This may be spoiling the surprise, or it may help you home in on the mini-platter when you're scrambling to find the limited single in your local shop, but you'll find the artwork up above.
As you can see, the cover is a bit of a collage, consisting of torn-up pictures of the musicians' mugs. You'll find a swoop of Feist's hair, a smattering of Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds's face tattoo, and a whole lot of facial hair. Fittingly, the record is billed to a mash-up of monikers. The acts have branded the project Feistodon.
Also, note the jiffy scribble on that protruding tongue, no doubt a nod to the Atlanta act's "Black Tongue," reinterpreted on the slab of wax by Feist. As previously reported, Mastodon deliver a version of Metals track "A Commotion" on the flip.
In addition to the artwork reveal, Feist has shared a new video for her Metals cut "Bittersweet Melodies." Courtesy of Rolling Stone, you can watch it below.
