Parquet Courts released a new Danger Mouse-produced album, Wide Awake!, back May via Rough Trade. Now the band have stopped by BBC Radio 6 where they did a cover of Ramones' "Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World," a song from the iconic punk band's self-titled debut from 1976. Listen to the cover below, followed by Ramones' original.

Previously Parquet Courts shared the album's first single, "Almost Had to Start a Fight/In and Out of Patience" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for "Wide Awake" (which was our #1 Song of the Week). They also stopped by Ellen to perform "Wide Awake" (note: unlike the album title, the song doesn't feature an explanation point), which is a song Ellen DeGeneres "loves very much," so said the host when introducing the band. And they shared a video for "Mardi Gras Beads" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Wide Awake! is the band's fifth album and the follow-up to 2016's excellent Human Performance. Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) is a fan of Parquet Courts and approached the band about working with them.
