Lemonheads tackle songs originally by the likes of Eagles (“Take It Easy”), Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (“Straight to You”), John Prine (“Speed of the Sound of Loneliness”) and Lucinda Williams (“Abandoned”) on Varshons 2, which arrives February 8th. Dando and company also shared the first single from the LP, an autumnal spin on Yo La Tengo’s Fakebook cut “Can’t Forget.”

Varshons 2, available to pre-order now, also features Lemonheads’ versions of songs by the Jayhawks, Florida Georgia Line, NRBQ, Paul Westerberg, Bevis Frond, and the Eyes. Dando also revisits “Unfamiliar,” a GiveGoods track he co-wrote with Sneeze frontman and Lemonheads collaborator Tom Morgan.
