Having released their latest album, FLOTUS, in November to critical acclaim including ‘Albums of the Year’ mentions in publications such as MOJO, Uncut, The Guardian and The Times; Lambchop have shared their cover of Prince’s iconic ‘When You Were Mine’, recorded by the band’s new live line up featuring Wye Oak’s Andy Stack.

The track comes ahead of the band’s sold out and only UK show tomorrow night at The Roundhouse – the first of the ‘In The Round’ series as well the first show featuring their new live line up – and their nearly three month long European tour.

The track continues Kurt Wagner’s exploration of R&B themes on FLOTUS with an underpinning current of subtle echoes and flourishing piano lines. The many moving parts are tied together by Wagner’s skewed and distorted vocals to create a beautiful and intriguing take on the much covered track that stands it in a realm of its own

FLOTUS is available now on CD, 2LP and digital download: https://lambchop.lnk.to/flotus
