Built To Spill Releasing Daniel Johnston Cover Album

When Daniel Johnston passed away last year, RtBE mentioned that our gateway into Johnston's music was a Built To Spill cover. 
The band was huge fans, backing him on his final tour in 2017, and now comes an album full of covers they recorded prepping for that tour.  To be released on May 1st, the directly titled Built to Spill Plays the Songs of Daniel Johnston will be released.

You can pre-order the album now on the groups Bandcamp page. Here is the first song from the album, "Bloody Rainbow" and a few other old Built to Spill Daniel Johnston Covers and a tune from their tour together:
