"America" will initially be available exclusively as a 10" single for Record Store Day, and will be released on Nov 28th, 2014. 


In addition to supporting Stay Gold, Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit having been serving up a fair share of cover songs lately. Following recent tributes to Jack White and R.E.M., the Söderberg have unveiled a tender redo of Simon & Garfunkel's "America."

A video for the cover acts as a tour-time travelogue, with the partnership seen hopping on buses, walking past marquees, strolling through festival grounds and more. With the tender pluck of an acoustic guitar and their siren-song harmonies, they approach folk legends' Simon and Garfunkel's lines of hitchhiking through Saginaw.

First Aid Kit's "America" arrives on a 10-inch release November 28, as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event.
