'Advice To The Graduate' gets re-worked...

The Pastels have confirmed a new Record Store Day release.

The Glasgow indie pop legends will dip into lesser charted areas of their archive, sharing a brand new seven inch for the annual celebration of independent music retail.

It's a two sided release, with The Pastels releasing a Peel session from 1997 alongside a Silver Jews cover.

While the Peel session is memorable in itself - the band waited 13 years to be asked back following their inaugural date - fans will undoubtedly be fascinated by this new David Berman salute.

A beautifully crisp cover of 'Advice To The Graduate', it's introduced by Stephen Pastel...

“It seemed poignant then, now almost unbearably so. Katrina and I had been asked to perform it at a Drag City showcase in New York a couple of years earlier with the Drag City All Stars. It’s such a perfect, simple song and it made sense to us partly because of Laurence who had introduced us and made it feel like we were all in a Domino family. Still feel that.”

Check it out now.

The Pastels will release a new seven inch single on Record Store Day (August 29th).
