Singer-songwriter Feist is set to collaborate with heavy metal act Mastodon.

The two acts will work together for next year’s Record Store Day and will cover each other’s songs for a split seven-inch release, available on April 21 at selected independent record stores.

The idea is for Mastodon to cover a Feist song and throw some hair and dirt on it. [Feist will] take a Mastodon song and pretty it up a little bit,” explained Troy Sanders of Mastodon.

The acts met in October on [i]Later… With Jools Holland[/i], reports the Guardian. Speaking to [url=http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/immaculate-noise/posts/interview-feist-talks-n

“So backstage I’m thinking about letting these two worlds collide, how they should collide, so I’m like, ‘how about ‘Metals’ meeting metal?’ Brent was like: ‘Well, I do like that ‘The Bad In Each Other’ song. I could see that.’ Maybe now I will look into learning to cover ‘Oblivion’, or anything off [The Hunter]. That album’s amazing.”

Feist recently announced two UK shows for March next year. She will play London‘s Royal Albert Hall on March 25 and Manchester‘s O2 Apollo on March 26.
