Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters, and subsequently Sun Kill Moon) has put a cover of the Waylon Jennings’ track Amanda online. The cover, a collaboration with Low’s Mimi Parker and Will Oldham, is one of the tracks from his upcoming covers Album Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites, due out on Caldo Verde Records on May 27th.
