The band took to Instagram yesterday to announce the arrival of the two-track single: “’Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ was recorded in Nashville with The Raconteur’s Brendan Benson while we were on tour. We strived to recreate the power of the original recording while harnessing a more pastoral sonic. We wanted to reshape and re-tool with the same skeletal framework; strip it and re-dress it with new varnish. Benson even brought in the renowned McCrary Sisters to sing back up. We hope you enjoy – ‘Mirrorball & Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ out Friday.”
