Foxygen‘s Jonathan Rado has covered Bruce Springsteen‘s album Born to Run in its entirety for Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious vinyl subscription series. He has also shared his cover of “Thunder Road,” which you can listen below. The series has already featured Yumi Zouma covering Oasis’ (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, announced Ben Gibbard covering Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque, and will also feature Local Natives, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Kristin Kontrol, and more covering favorite albums. Rado’s take on Born to Run will be released on May 12 on limited edition vinyl (only 1,000 copies, each with a download card). Check out “Thunder Road” below, followed by the album’s cover art.

Pre-orders for the series are $25 a month (plus shipping) and are available here. More info on the series is below.

Foxygen released a new album, Hang, back in January via Jagjaguwar. Previously the duo shared “America,” a grandiose track that featured an orchestra, as well as the dance-tastic video for “Follow the Leader” and the videos for “On Lankershim” and “Upon a Hill.” Every song on Hang features a 40-plus-piece orchestra arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard. Matthew E. White also did additional arranging. The Lemon Twigs (aka brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario) were the band’s rhythm section, which makes sense since Rado produced their recent debut album, Do Hollywood. Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips also guests on select tracks.

Read our recent interview with Foxygen about Hang.
