More Info:

Sub Pop labelmates Low and Shearwater each contribute arguably improbable covers of popular songs to this limited-edition Record Store Day Back to Black Friday 7" single. After performing a crowd-favorite live version of Rihanna's "Stay" at the Pitchfork Music Festival this past July, Low recorded a studio version at Sacred Heart in Duluth, MN. Shearwater recorded their own gauze-wrapped, undulating version of Frank Ocean's "Novacane" for this single. Sales of this single will benefit Rock for Kids (www.rockforkids.org) on Low's behalf, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (www.splcenter.org/) from Shearwater.

Side A: Low - "Stay" (Rihanna Cover) Side B: Shearwater - "Novacane" (Frank Ocean Cover)
