RARITIES, B-SIDES & OTHER STUFF: Markéta Irglová & Sean Rowe Sing 'Birds'

RARITIES, B-SIDES & OTHER STUFF: A feature paying tribute to rare songs, great b-sides, fantastic covers and bonus tracks, or anything else that catches my eye, or my ear rather.

Currently taking a brief break from collaborating with The Frames' Glen Hansard as one half of music project The Swell Season, Markéta Irglová has spent the last number of months working on her debut solo album Anar, which was released on October 19th on Anti Records.

The Czech singer-songwriter has been spending the last number of weeks on tour with folk singer-songwriter and musician Sean Rowe, and recently collaborated on a duet of 'Birds', written and originally performed by the legendary Neil Young. Rowe's gritty yet soothing baritone offer a poignant take on the song, while Irglová's stunning vocals compliment him perfectly.

With thanks to NPR, you can check out their moving rendition here.
