Feist and Mastodon Release Cover Art for Record Store Day Collaboration

Warner Bros.

Look out, it’s Feistodon! Feist and Mastodon have released the cover art for their Record Store Day collaboration.

The creepy image features pasted-together images of the band members under the ‘Feistodon’ label.The morphed figure has a hand-drawn black tongue, signifying Feist’s cover of the Mastodon track ‘Black Tongue.’

The other half of the record will be Mastodon’s cover of Feist’s ‘A Commotion,’ a song from her latest album, ‘Metals.’ Feist tells Rolling Stone, “It’s a wet dream to have Mastodon take one of my songs and put it into their massive machine.”

Feist adds, “Mastodon fans would probably be disappointed to know that I actually didn’t know Mastodon very well. I actually went onto one of those lyric websites, and I scrolled through 50 songs and just narrowed it down to the ones I thought I could wrap myself around the words. ‘Black Tongue’ is speaking in my kind of elemental language – about diamond and earth and sky. It’s all just in a language that I already sort of speak lyrically. It was pretty easy to climb into that one.”

The 7″ single will be available on Record Store Day — Tuesday, April 21. A number of bands have recorded special tracks for the event. Mastodon are also releasing their version of the Flaming Lips‘ ‘A Spoonful Weighs a Ton.’
