THE SMITHS | A Tribute

Okay, so there are more The Smiths tributes, covers, and ‘Best Of’ collections than anyone can count. And frankly, Mr. Shankly, there are a good number of bad Smiths covers. But it’s still difficult to stay away from it all. There’s always that chance you’ll find that one cover that will make you forget, if just for a few minutes, that we’ll never have new Smiths song ever again. American Laundromat Records is releasing a 20-track, double-CD tribute to the music of The Smiths, plus three bonus songs on 7-inch. It’s called “Please, Please, Please: A Tribute to The Smiths”. The album will be out Dec. 13th, but you can pre-order yours at the official site here. Listen to Stars sing the deathly lullaby, “Asleep”, below. The cover was first released as a bonus track on the band’s 2010 record, “The Five Ghosts”. I’m assuming the same recording is also on this tribute. The tracklist is below. — David D. Robbins Jr.
