The Gaslight Anthem are set to cover Bon Iver's track 'Skinny Love'.

The New Jersey punk band's version of the song will feature on a special 10-inch red vinyl release.

The limited edition three-track all-acoustic single will comprise the never-before-heard songs 'Hold You Up' and 'Misery', as well as 'Skinny Love', and will be put out on November 24 as a special Black Friday release.

'Skinny Love' – which features on Bon Iver's 2007 debut 'For Emma, Forever Ago', has previously been covered by the British singer Birdy. Scroll down to listen to the original version of the song.

The Gaslight Anthem are currently on tour in the UK, following this summer's release of their fourth album, 'Handwritten'.

They play the O2 Academy Brixton tonight (October 15) and on Wednesday (17) and follow their London dates with shows at the O2 Apollo Manchester (18), O2 Academy Glasgow (19) and O2 Academy Birmingham (20).
