Kevin Devine shares cover of the Cure’s “Lovesong” from split with Tigers Jaw
The third installment of Kevin Devine's ongoing seven-inch Devinyl Splits series will be available on September 11 through Bad Timing Records. Following the first two entries, with Matthew Caws and Meredith Graves, respectively, Devinyl Splits No. 3 sees Devine teaming up with Pennsylvania duo Tigers Jaw for a pair of the Cure covers.
Whereas Tigers Jaw chose to cover "In Between Days" from 1985's The Head On The Door, Devine went with a song nearly everyone probably knows without even realizing it: "Lovesong" from 1989's Disintegration, the Cure's eighth studio album, and arguably the band's best release to date. You can stream Devine's take on the track below (via Stereogum) and pre-order a seven-inch copy of the split on dark red vinyl here.
