Flood Magazine reported this week that J Mascis will be releasing a cover of Mazzy Star’s classic 1994 single “Fade Into You” on Record Store Day. The article doesn’t specify this, but the release will happen on RSD’s Black Friday event on Nov. 28, not the regular RSD in April. The clip they posted of a live version of the song is every bit as wonderful as Mascis’ years-ago cover, with Dinosaur Jr, of the Cure’s “Just Like Heaven,” which itself got the RSD treatment earlier this year.
DM readers in the Southwest and West Coast of the USA still have a chance to catch Masics on his Tied to a Star tour through November. He’ll be in Europe in December, and the UK in January.
