Afghan Whigs Cover Frank Ocean's 'Lovecrimes,' Lengthen Reunion Tour

 The Afghan Whigs have been reveling in the reunion love with a massive tour, bringing the venerated indie band to the audiences across the world for another go-around. And during this tour, they've been having fun with their song choices, playing a mixture of old stand-bys along with covers.

One of their most talked-about covers has been their rendition of Frank Ocean's "Lovecrimes" (off his Nostalgia, Ultra). The Whigs slow down the original, keeping the beating R&B heart intact but they bring out the inherent moodiness to the forefront. A studio version of the cover will be available today at noon EST through the band's website, but in the meantime stream it below. Also, watch a live rendition and check out more Whigs tour dates.
