Marcus Mumford and Justin Young have teamed over the weekend to cover hits by Bob Dylan and Neil Young which are expected to be released on website Daytrotter in October,
Marcus Mumford and Justin Young teamed up to cover songs by Bob Dylan and Neil Young.
The pair - who are each enjoying their own success as part of bands Mumford & Sons and The Vaccines - recorded Bob's 1963 hit 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' and Neil's 1977 track 'Like A Hurricane', in the early hours of Sunday morning (01.08.13) at Troy High School in Ohio, America.
Daytrotter - the website for the recording studio Horseshack - founder Sean Moeller told NME.com: "It was about 2am in Troy, Ohio Saturday night when Marcus plucked Justin out of the waterpark pool on the Stopover grounds - the after party was raging 'til 4 am 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."
Following their work Daytrotter tweeted: "Look for the new Marcus Mumford / Justin Hayward-Young collaboration session coming soon!", and attached an image of the pair sitting and working on the tracks.
The track is expected to be released on the website in October.
