Dean Wareham (of Luna, Galaxie 500, and Dean & Britta) has teamed up with one-man band Cheval Sombre (aka Chris Porpora) for the collaborative album Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre, which is due out October 26 via Wareham's Double Feature label. Previously they shared a trailer for the album. Now they have shared its first single, a version of the folk standard "Wayfaring Stranger," via a video for the track. Watch it below.

"Wayfaring Stranger" dates back to the early 19th century and has been covered by all sorts of artists over the years, including Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Neko Case, Joan Baez, Glen Campbell, and many others.

Jonathan Bree of the New Zealand band The Brunettes directed the video. Wareham had this to say about it in a press release: "Jonathan is one of my favorite musical artists, and has made some slyly funny videos the last couple of years. He shot the video for 'Wayfaring Stranger,' and suggested that I should wear Wayfarer sunglasses. I was too scared to ride a real horse so we made a pretend-horse from a stool and a pillow." 

A previous press release said Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre is "an album of western-themed songs" and also calls it a "western dream pop album." The tracklist shows that it's also a covers record. It was recorded in downtown Los Angeles at Palmetto Recordings with producer Jason Quever (Papercuts, Beach House). The backing band included Wareham's wife and bandmate in Dean & Britta and Luna, Britta Phillips, along with Anthony LaMarca (The War on Drugs) and Will Halsey (Sugarcandy Mountain).
