The Levi’s Pioneer Sessions online series has given us free mp3s of people like Dirty Projectors, She & Him, and Nas covering classic songs. And today, Levi’s is offering the world The Shins’ cover of Squeeze’s new wave nugget “Goodbye Girl”.
This is the first new piece of Shins music that we’ve heard since their lineup shakeup last year. For this recording, Mercer was joined on guitar by longtime Shins guitarist Dave Hernandez, on drums by Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse, Black Heart Procession), and on keyboards by producer Sean Flora.
