Listen Up! Lydia Loveless Covers cover of Ke$ha’s “Blind for Record Store Day


Record Store Day is not only an opportunity to inject much needed revenue ( and love) to yu local mom-and-pop vinyl dealers, it also a opportunity to artists to get in touch with their funky side and cut loose

This year’s event has Columbus, OH pop-twang chanteuse Lyda Loveless will release a non-album cut “Mile High.” The B side a cover of Kesha’s dance-hall ballad “Blind,” Loveless smartly strips out the Autotune and cheesy beats and turns up the rock and soul to ring out the blood and tears of a song.

“You must be blind if you can’t see/you’ll miss me ’till the day you/without me, you’re nothing”

Sentiment like that is jukebox gold.

“Mile High” b/w “Blind” is out on April 19 via Bloodshot Records on limited edition lime green vinyl.

Lydia Loveless’s acclaimed new album ‘Somewhere Else‘ is out now.
