Poised to play summer festivals from Chicago’s Lollapalooza to Oslo’s Øya, the reunited Afghan Whigs have released their second new song this year. Now, if you’re hoping for original material, you’ll be disappointed — like “See and Don’t See,” this is a cover. But if you’re interested to see what Greg Dulli and co. can do with man of the hour Frank Ocean’s “Lovecrimes” (and you should be), then it will be hard to complain about this string-heavy rendition of a track that’s right at home with the band’s dark-romantic aesthetic. Download it for free at The Afghan Whigs’ website, where you can also peruse some newly announced North American tour dates.
