J Mascis “Wide Awake” ft. Cat Power

J Mascis, best known as the white-haired, purple-wearing frontman of Dinosaur Jr., has just released the second single off his upcoming LP, Tied To A Star, featuring a surprising guest vocalist: Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power.

While Mascis is best known for wailing guitar-driven rock, he scales it down on “Wide Awake” for a more acoustic/folk sounding vibe. Marshall’s smoky vocals harmonize with Mascis’ perfectly. The song contains a toned-down wah-wah guitar solo, as well as a fake build that makes you think for a second that it might break out into Dinosaur Jr. territory before coming right back down.

Listen to the track below and pre-order his new album here, which releases on August 26 via Sub Pop.
