Feist Unveils Artwork for Split Single with Mastodon, Shares New Video
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.
