Grizzly Bear are releasing Veckatimest's second single today. "While You Wait For the Others" is being released on iTunes and as a 7 inch. The B-side is a new version of "While You Wait For the Others" that features the one and only Michael McDonald on lead vocals! McDonald is the '70s and '80s icon who got his start in Steely Dan, was then recruited by The Doobie Brothers in 1975, and had a successful solo career in the '80s with such hits as Yah Mo B There, his 1983 duet with James Ingram. No word on how and why McDonald came to sing on this version of "While You Wait For the Others."

Last night, Grizzly Bear just played the last of this year's Pool Parties in Brooklyn and apparently, according to MTV, Jay-Z and Beyoncé were on hand to check them out.

Grizzly Bear also have a bunch of upcoming tour dates:
