Last year, the North Carolina band Lost in the Trees announced an indefinite hiatus (and it sounds like it’s permanent). But before they went their separate ways (well before in fact), they recorded a majestic cover of the Beatles’ “And Your Bird Can Sing.” We’re proud to premiere it below.

The song comes off an exciting set of Beatles cover albums coming out this Friday on Reimagine Music, a covers-only label that has released great tributes to Bob Dylan, Uncle Tupelo, the Rolling Stones, Jack Kerouac, and more. And they’ve gone all out to honor the Fab Four, releasing not one but three Beatles tribute albums all in one go: song-by-song tributes to Rubber Soul and Revolver, plus a more unusual tribute to songs the Beatles wrote but never released themselves.

With its unexpected string arrangements and Ari Picker’s wordless hollers, “And Your Bird Can Sing” is Lost in the Trees at their best. It was recorded way back in 2010, but just seeing the light of day now. If this is indeed the last song we ever hear from them, it’s a great way to go out.

Preorder the ‘Rubber Soul’ tribute here, the ‘Revolver’ tribute here, and the ‘Lost Songs of the Beatles’ tribute here.
