Currently sharing the stage for a co-headlining tour through across the U.S., The Hold Steady and Deer Tick recently entered in the studio for a round of recording covering each other's respective material. The resulting sessions had The Holdy Steady tackling "Easy" from Deer Tick's 2009 album Born on Flag Day, while Deer Tick delivered a rendition of The Hold Steady's "Constructive Summer" off their 2008 LP Stay Positive.

In an interview with the AV Club The Hold Steady's Criag Finn said "I think that 'Easy' was the first Deer Tick song I ever heard and I’ve always thought it had a really cool vibe. It gives me the chills when John [McCauley] does that line about the devil in his eyes. The song is classic Deer Tick, it’s rock and roll that’s passionate and knowing." Meanwhile McCauley noted, "Craig Finn can bring you right back to the time in your life when partying went hand in hand with ambition. 'Constructive Summer' reminds me how rock and roll’s simplicity gives power to heart instead intellectualism.”
