The Vaccines have recorded covers of ABBA, Wire and Jonathan Richman on a brand-new EP, which they are giving away for free.

The EP, which is titled 'Please, Please Do Not Disturb', is available to downloaded free from the band's official website

The band have covered ABBA's classic single 'The Winner Takes It All', Nick Lowe's 'The Beast In Me', Wire's 'Mannequin', and Jonathan Richman's much-loved track 'That Summer Feeling' on the EP, which was recorded in hotel rooms during the band's tour of Eastern Europe earlier this year. You can hear the band's Abba cover at the bottom of the page.

This is the second time in recent months that the band have given away a free EP. Earlier this year, the band offered fans a free live EP, recorded in Brighton, to download featuring the tracks 'Tiger Blood', live favourite 'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' and their cover of R Stevie Moore's 'Why Should I Love You'.

The Vaccines release their second album 'The Vaccines Come Of Age' on September 3. The album has been produced by Ethan Johns, who has previously worked on albums by the likes of Kings Of Leon, Laura Marling and Tom Jones. It was recorded earlier this year.

The tracklisting for 'Please, Please Do Not Disturb' is as follows:

'The Beast In Me'
'The Winner Takes It All'
'That Summer Feeling'
