Lydia Loveless Covers Ke$ha Track for Record Store Day


Record Store Day is not only an opportunity to inject much needed revenue ( and love) to your local mom-and-pop vinyl dealers, it also a opportunity to artists to get in touch with their funky side and cut loose.

This year’s event has Columbus, OH pop-twang chanteuse Lyda Loveless releasing a non-album cut “Mile High”. The B side is a cover of Kesha’s dance-hall ballad “Blind”. Loveless smartly strips out the Auto-tune and cheesy beats and turns up the rock and soul to ring out the blood and tears of a song.

“You must be blind if you can’t see/you’ll miss me ’till the day you/without me, you’re nothing”

Sentiment like that is jukebox gold.

“Mile High” b/w “Blind” is out on April 19 via Bloodshot Records on limited edition lime green vinyl.

Lydia Loveless’s acclaimed new album ‘Somewhere Else‘ is out now.
