LateNightTales is a compilation series that “invites the world’s best artists to delve deep into their music collections to create the ultimate ‘late night’ selection.” The series has been active since 2001, and boasts many recognizable names in music, including The Flaming Lips, Air, and, most recently, Belle and Sebastian.

This is the second volume Belle and Sebastian has arranged for LateNightTales. The newest installment features the band covering the very catchy song “Crash” by The Primitives. The song is musically nowhere near anything Belle and Sebastian would do – it has too many audible power chords – however, the lyrics are reminiscent of Belle and Sebastian stories, making the cover completely believable. Stream it below. (via Consequence of Sound)
