Yeah! Oh Yeah!

Tracey Thorn and Jens Lekman team up to record a version of Yeah! Oh Yeah! by The Magnetic Fields: two great artists covering a third's song. How could this be anything other than fabulous? It's a bit like indie fantasy football or something (if that makes any sense. Probably not). Anyway, here it be!

Tracey Thorn's new album, Love and Its Opposite, is out in May. Sign up to the mailing list at her official website for news, updates, special offers and free downloads from the new album.

Jens Lekman is utterly brilliant. If by some unfortunate quirk of fate you've never heard any of his solo output before, here are a few cast-iron classics from the Lekman canon to get you started.

Jens Lekman - A Sweet Summer's Night on Hammer Hill mp3

Jens Lekman - Black Cab mp3

Jens Lekman - Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo mp3

Lots more over here.
