We’ll have a ton of new Record Store Day covers next week, but we get a second sneak peek (after LCD Soundsystem’s “Live Alone”). The Decemberists are releasing Live at Bull Music, a new live album recorded at the Bull Moose record store in Scarborough, Maine in January. In addition to six performances of The King Is Dead cuts, the set includes a new cover of the Louvin Brothers’ “If I Could Only Win Your Love.”

Also a hit for Emmylou Harris in 1975, “If I Could Only Win Your Love” finds Colin Meloy and the chart-topping gang at their most country – and with slide guitar aplenty, that’s pretty darn country. Check it out below.
