The Lemonheads appear to be giving their upcoming release, Varshons 2 the old college try. With the second release off of the upcoming album being a cover by The Beavis Frond, it feels like Dando and company are back in more ways than one. Picking “Old Man Blank” as a track to cover as well as a single, makes more sense than you know.
It’s a proper cover, meaning that Dando makes it his own. It’s still the song by the British cult rockers, but it definitely shows that Dando is a fan. He nails the offbeat lyrics with ease, and steers the track into being more of a song by his band than the original. It works so much that it makes you ready for the album’s drop on February 8.
Alongside the single release, The Lemonheads have announced the first run of dates to support Varshons 2.
You can stream the track above all that you’d like. Varshons 2 will be available worldwide from Fire Records on February 8. You can preorder the album directly from Fire, here.
