This week, Jason Isbell and his wife Amanda Shires dropped a surprise two-song covers EP called Sea Songs. It features sparse takes on two natically-themed tracks, Warren Zevon‘s “Mutineer” and a more unexpected choice: Lykke Li‘s storming “I Follow Rivers.” They just hit the web, stream both below.

The tracks come as a preview for when the two get back in the studio next month with producer Dave Cobb, who helmed Isbell’s acclaimed Southeastern in 2013. The pair of covers recall their fantastic “Born in the U.S.A.” last year.

Buy the ‘Sea Songs’ EP on iTunes. Check out more Jason Isbell here and Amanda Shires here.
