The Vaccines and R.Stevie Moore to cover each other for Record Store Day

Justin Young and co will tackle 'Why Should I Love You?', with Moore taking on 'Post Break-Up Sex'

The Vaccines and R.Stevie Moore will cover each other’s songs for a limited edition single as part of this year’s Record Store Day.

The London quartet, who are currently recording their second album in Belgium with producer Ethan Johns, will cover Moore’s 1986 track ‘Why Should I Love You?’, with the lo-fi guitarist returning the favour with a new rendition of their single ‘Post Break-Up Sex’.

The single will be released on limited edition 7″ vinyl on April 21 on O Genesis, the record label run by The Charlatans‘ frontman Tim Burgess. The singer has also co-produced both tracks along with Jim Spencer.

The Vaccines tour the UK next month, playing a total of four seaside dates. The jaunt will kick off at Dundee Caird Hall on May 2 before wrapping up with a gig at Brighton Centre on May 7.

The band also have a busy summer of festival appearances, with slots at Reading and Leeds Festivals, T In The Park, Chazzstock, Isle Of Wight Festival and Benicassim among their bookings.
