Earlier this year for Record Store Day, fans of Mastodon and Feist were treated to a single with the band and singer/songwriter covering each other’s songs. There was probably many a Mastodon fan that weren’t aware that they’d ever like a song by Feist, and vice versa, but she did an interesting cover of “Black Tongue,” while the Atlanta quartet Mastodon-ized her “A Commotion.” Alas, all 5,000 copies of the single sold out immediately, but as of today, you’ll be able to pick up the digital version of the single at all your finer digital retailers, like Amazon and iTunes.
What’s arguably cooler than the single is that at both Mastodon and Feist‘s websites (as well as above), there’s an interactive version of “A Commotion.” While Feist’s version of the video plays, you can drag a mixer back and forth to toggle between Feist and Mastodon’s version of the song, or just leave it in the middle and listen to a mash-up of the two.
