The Avett Brothers are never ones to shy away from a cover or two. So it makes perfect sense that they’re contributing to the much-anticipated (and cumbersomely named) Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International. The collection of 75 (75!) Bob Dylan covers on four discs will be released tomorrow, so the Avetts stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week to promote the collection with their contribution, a cover of “One Too Many Mornings.”

The Avett’s take on the 1964 track is reminiscent of the quieter moments from their most recent album, the Grammy-nominated I and Love and You. Seth and Scott Avett share vocal duties during the performance, backed up by banjo, acoustic guitar, and Bob Crawford’s standup bass. The track is a promising preview for Chimes of Freedom, which is on course to be one of the standout covers albums of the year. We’ll have our review tomorrow, but first, watch the Avetts sing “One Too Many Mornings.”
