The Hold Steady are currently on a short tour with Deer Tick, and perhaps in preparation for some concert surprises, they've just shared this cover of "Easy," a track from Deer Tick's second album, Born on Flag Day.

The cover sees The Hold Steady's Craig Finn add some grit to the morose lyrics of the track. It's a simple and honest cover, just a bit faster and a bit more rock and roll than the original. Finn told The AV Club about the track:

“I think that ‘Easy’ was the first Deer Tick song I ever heard and I’ve always thought it had a really cool vibe. It gives me the chills when John [McCauley] does that line about the devil in his eyes. The song is classic Deer Tick, it’s rock and roll that’s passionate and knowing.”

You can stream The Hold Steady's new record, Teeth Dreams, right here at Zumic. For more music, news, and videos, check out their Zumic artist page and see their tour dates below.
