As previously reported, Canadian indie-rock songstress Leslie Feist recently revealed her hopes to collaborate with metal titans Mastodon, following the two acts’ recent appearance on Later… with Jools Holland.
Brent [Hinds] and I were nodding at each other, and hes like, Nice riff, and Im like Nice tone. So backstage Im thinking about letting these two worlds collide, how they should collide, so Im like How about Metals meeting metal? After pitching the prospects of a split record, Feist said Brent was like, Well, I do like that Bad in Each Other song, I could see that. Maybe now I will look into learning to cover Oblivion or anything off [The Hunter]. That albums amazing.
Now, as Mastodon’s Troy Sanders reveals in an interview with MTV News Canada (via Pitchfork), the band has decided to take Feist up on her offer. The two acts plan to cover one another’s songs for a split single destined for Record Store Day 2012.
