Mark Kozelek always seems to have something in the pipeline, be it a solo release, one under his Sun Kil Moon moniker, or a collaborative album. Now he has announced a new album with Petra Haden, Joey Always Smiled, and shared its closing track, a cover of Huey Lewis and the News' 1985 hit "The Power of Love," from the soundtrack to the classic film Back to the Future. As Brooklyn Vegan reports, Joey Always Smiled is due out on October 11 via Kozelek's own Caldo Verde label. Listen to "The Power of Love" cover below, followed by the video for the original song and the album's tracklist and cover art.

Kozelek and Haden take the upbeat rock of Huey Lewis and the News' original and turn it into something much slower and more stripped back, which puts a greater emphasis on the lyrics (and they are still quite good without all the '80s production). "The Power of Love" was Huey Lewis and the News first number 1 hit and was featured prominently in Back to the Future. Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly character also plays a harder rock instrumental version of the song with his band The Pinheads in an audition to before at the high school dance, but is turned down by the judge, played by Lewis himself in a cameo who says "I'm afraid you're just too damn loud."

Joey Always Smiled also features Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley, character actor Kevin Corrigan, and others. The album's other six songs are originals.

Joey Always Smiled Tracklist:

01 "Parakeet Prison"
02 "Joey Always Smiled"
03 "Rest In Peace R Lee Ermey"
04 "Nice People All Around"
05 "1983 Era MTV Music Is The Soundtrack To Outcasts Being Bullied By Jocks"
06 "Spanish Hotels Are Echoey"
07 "The Power Of Love"
