Stephen Malkmus has shared "Refute," his duet with Kim Gordon that is the penultimate track on The Jicks' new album, Sparkle Hard. It's a countrified look at marriage and fidelity as only Malkmus could do, and Gordon's whispery rasp works perfectly here. Listen below.

While you're listening you can take the Buzzfeed-style Sparkle Hard quiz that determines just how hard you sparkle and then generates a Spotify playlist based on that.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks will be on tour later this year with Lithics, including two sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg shows in Brooklyn.

STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS - "REFUTE" LYRICS:

THIS IS A VERSE ABOUT A MAN WHO DARED
TO FALL HEAD OVER HEELS FOR A WOMAN WHO SHARED
SIMILAR INTERESTS
SIMILAR LOOKS
SIMILAR TASTE IN
SIMILAR BOOKS
LOST IN THE MAGIC OF HER SEVEN-ISH EYES
PAINT ON LIPS AND FRENCH KNEE-HIGHS
THE WORLD WAS TELLING HIM LOVE IS DEA
BUT THEIR TURNING THAT LOGIC ON ITS HEAD

MARRY ON MARRY ON AND YOU WILL KNOW
MARRY ON

THIS IS A VERSE ABOUT A WOMAN WHO DARED TO FALL HEAD FIRST FOR HER YOUNG AU PAIR
MIDDLE CLASS VALUES AND NORMALCY
TO HER THAT WAS SO LAST CENTURY
SHE WOOED HER WITH RETAIN AND DRUGGED NEHI
EGON SCHIELE PRINTS AND FRENCH FRIES
THE KIND OF STORY MADE FOR THE STAGE
THE KIND OF STORY JUST JUMPS OFF THE PAGE
ILL TELL YA

MARRY ON CHILDREN BUT BE AWARE
THE WORLD DOESNT WANT YO ANYMORE

I KNOW YOU WANT TO REFUTE ALL I SAY
I KNOW YOU WANT TO REFUTE ALL THAT I HAVE SHARED TODAY
