Mark Kozelek & Petra Haden rework Huey Lewis’ “The Power of Love” for new LP (listen)

Mark and Petra

Mark Kozelek and Petra Haden‘s collaborative album, Joey Always Smiled, is out in October and also features appearances by Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley, actor Kevin Corrigan, Ben Boye and more. In addition to the Kozelek/Haden originals, the record closes with a cover of Huey Lewis & The News’ Back to the Future soundtrack hit, “The Power of Love.” Mark and Petra really only retain the words, putting a new melody to the song and recasting it as a spare folk. That premieres in this post — listen below.

Both Mark and Petra have upcoming live dates. Mark will be on tour in Japan and Austraila this month, and has a few North American shows in September, playing Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Chicago. Petra, meanwhile, is touring with Nancy & Beth (aka Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt), playing violin and singing backup, including their upcoming Cafe Carlyle run this month.

All dates are listed, along with Joe Always Smiled album art, tracklist and details, below.
