The band’s frontman, Brian Fallon, recorded an acoustic version of the much-loved song, which is taken from the band’s 1997 LP ‘The Colour And The Shape’, on a recent session of BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

Earlier this month (October 15), The Gaslight Anthem revealed that they would record another cover version on a forthcoming release, with the band pledging to release their own rendition of Bon Iver’s track ‘Skinny Love’ 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.

The Gaslight Anthem released their fourth studio album, ‘Handwritten’, in July of this year. In August, the band told NME in a video interview that putting out the record – which was their first LP release on major label Mercury – had been “the most pressure in our career we’ve ever been under”, although it became a success after entering the Official UK Album Chart at Number Two.
