Hometown hero Kurt Vile recently stopped by Spotify HQ recently to record a pair of singles, including a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations.” The track, from the Stones’ 1968 album Beggars Banquet, is reimagined in Vile’s signature style and stripped down for the session, with drawn out vocals and harmonica. The B side is an acoustic version of “Loading Zones,” off Vile’s recent album Bottle It In. Listen to the singles below via Spotify.

Vile also just announced a new string of tour dates in the US and Canada this summer, including an appearance at Central Park Summerstage in July. Find more information below.
