Manchester Orchestra and Jimmy Eat World have teamed up to cover songs from each other’s discographies. Manchester Orchestra has released a recording of Jimmy Eat World’s “Table For Glasses,” via Loma Vista as Jimmy Eat World has taken on Manchester Orchestra’s “Telepath” via Exotic Location. Both bands will also be co-headlining North America together over the summer. Listen to the covers below followed by upcoming tour dates.

According to a press release, Jimmy Eat World transforms “Telepath” from a spectral, acoustic song into a conglomeration of heavy electric guitar. Manchester Orchestra transforms “Table for Guitar” with a more subtle, and softer touch.

“It was an absolute honor to trade covers with one of our favorite bands,” says Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. “We approached our cover with admiration for the original and had a blast exploring all of its spacious corners.”

Jimmy Eat World’s Jim Adkins adds: “Manchester Orchestra is great at sitting you down, spinning your chair around and stopping it to show you are now somewhere else. We knew if we were going to cover an immersive song like ‘Telepath,’ we’d have to commit to ‘stopping the chair’ at bizzaro-Jimmy Eat World universe.”

Both covers will also be available on limited edition 7-inch-vinyl.
