The Jesus And Mary Chain have streamed a new version of their track The Two Of Us, featuring Sky Ferreira – listen to it below.
The version that appears on comeback album Damage And Joy included guest vocals from Isobel Campbell, but the fresh take is said to retain Jim Reid’s “coolly understated delivery” and William Reid’s “Sixties-tinged distorted riffs and rock’n’roll grit.”
The album is their first since 1998’s Munki and came together over ten years of gradual work. Jim Reid said on its release: “We started to listen to each other a bit more. In the last couple of years, we’ve buried the hatchet to some degree – and thankfully not into each other.
“Most people who know us would say that we haven’t mellowed that much. I think it was to do with the fact, dare I say it, that wisdom comes with age. Let’s live and let live, and let’s take each other’s opinions into account.”
The Jesus And Mary Chain play a run of UK dates over the coming weeks – full list below.
