The frontmen sang 'Like A Hurricane' and 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' for the Daytrotter website
Covers of songs by Bob Dylan and Neil Young recorded by Mumford & Sons‘ Marcus Mumford and The Vaccines‘ Justin Young have gone online.
The two frontmen teamed up for the Daytrotter website back in August following Mumford & Sons Stopover festival in Troy, Ohio. Mumford and Young laid down two tracks, both of them cover versions: Neil Young’s ‘Like A Hurricane’ and Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’. Click here to listen to the tracks.
Of the collaboration, Daytrotter founder Sean Moeller told NME: “It was about 2am in Troy, Ohio Saturday night when Marcus plucked Justin out of the waterpark pool on the Stopover grounds – the afterparty was raging ’til 4am there – to come on up to the un-airconditioned Troy High School auditorium to record ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’ and ‘Like A Hurricane’, learning them on the spot, while we, along with the exhausted superintendent of the school and his family looked on from the back row.”
