Band of Horses Team with Jason Lytle for Townes Van Zandt Cover, Tour

After both releasing new albums this fall, Band of Horses and Jason Lytle are preparing to embark on a short tour to conclude 2012. In celebration of this jaunt, the pair have released a joint cover of the Townes Van Zandt song “Don’t You Take It Too Bad.”

The track is available for download below, with Band of Horses’ frontman Ben Bridwell noting that the “Townes Van Zandt cover was started by me in a Italian hotel room and finished in the wild of Montana by Mr. Lytle.” For those attending this tour, the chances of seeing an onstage collaboration just greatly improved.
