Kurt Vile has launched a new mostly-covers EP with 'How Lucky', a duet with John Prine.

His 'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV' EP will arrive on 2nd October, featuring covers of John Prine and “Cowboy” Jack Clement, as well as two originals, with the help of Bobby Wood, Dave Roe, and Kenny Malone with Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf).

Of the new song, Kurt says: “The truth is John was my hero for a long time when he came into The Butcher Shoppe to recut one of his deepest classics with me. And, man, I was floating and flying and I couldn't hear anything he told me while he was there till after he was gone for the night,” notes Vile in a personal statement that accompanies the record.

“A couple nights later we were playing ‘How Lucky’ together again; this time onstage at the Grand Ole Opry on New Year's Eve at the turn of 2020. Nothing like seeing John and his band of musical brothers and family and friends playing into the new decade in front of an adoring audience on that stage in Nashville, TN... and, yup, that's just how lucky we all got that night."

Check it out below.
