Click to listen to Surfer Blood's 'Miranda (Alt. Version)'

This version of "Miranda," a non-album track by Florida alt-rockers Surfer Blood, was produced by the Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner. The new arrangement maintains the original's Beach Boys-esque quality while introducing a harder-hitting, more complete sound than that of the band’s 2010 debut Astro Coast. You can listen to the track above, or download it instantly when you pre-order Tarot Classics, in stores on September 20th.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
