Just last week, we posted King Khan’s new quasi-solo Jay Reatard cover. We noted that this followed the dissolution of his beloved psych-garage outfit The King Khan and BBQ Show. Well, it also preceded the official reunion. Khan and Mark Sultan have returned following their acrimonious split with a new 7”. The A-Side is new song “We Are the Ocean” and the flip holds a post-Pink Floyd Syd Barrett cover.

The duo tackle Barrett’s “Terrapin,” which has also seen covers by Phish and Syd’s Floyd replacement David Gimour. Their version is a Nuggets-style psychedelic haze, tambourine and theremin soundtracking their return. Stream it below, then buy the 7” at Midheaven Mailorder.
