Stream Kevin Devine’s R.E.M. cover from 7-inch split with Jesse Lacey


In the final installment of his Devinyl Splits series, Kevin Devine announced that he and Brand New’s Jesse Lacey would each be covering an R.E.M. song. Two weeks ago, we were blessed with Lacey’s version of “Bad Day,” and it was just that: a blessing.

And today, Devine’s half of the split, which is him covering “Imitation Of Life,” has surfaced online via Mashable. Both Devine and Lacey have done justice to two great tracks by a legendary band. Devine’s choice of song is one of my personal favorites of R.E.M., and I love his soft and majestic version.

If you like what you hear below, and obviously you do, you can pre-order this installment of the Devinyl Splits series, as well as the others, at the Bad Timing Records store. No. 6 will be released on March 25, so be sure to pre-order it before it sells out, which it surely will, as only 2,000 copies will be pressed.
