Jason Isbell showed up at KEXP with 400 Unit’s Sadler Vaden and played a session that dropped Monday. Isbell has been making up for lost (covid) time, fleshing out a full tour schedule for the rest of the year and putting out a Georgia-centric covers album (Georgia Blue) last fall with Brandi Carlile and others sharing vocal duties.

One of those songs was “Driver 8,” a fan favorite from REM’s 1985 release Lifes Rich Pageant, that Isbell and Vaden performed in a stripped-down form at the KEXP session. Watch it below:
