Mark Kozelek Recruits Will Oldham and Low’s Mimi Parker for Subdued Cover of Waylon Jennings’ ‘Amanda’

Off of 'Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites,' out May 27 via Caldo Verde Records

Mark Kozelek continues his career-long prolific streak with a new covers album, Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites, out May 27 via Caldo Verde Records. Featuring covers of 10CC, Modest Mouse, and Bob Seger, the album includes contributions from friends and musicians including Low’s Mimi Parker and Will Oldham of Bonnie “Prince” Billy, both of whom lend their talents to a quiet cover of “Amanda” by outlaw stud Waylon Jennings. It’s short but sweet, with a simple piano, Kozelek’s weathered vowels, and Parker’s distant falsetto doing the (gently) heavy lifting. Listen and find the curmudgeonly bard’s upcoming tour dates below, and pre-order Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites here.
