J Mascis Covers Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You’

J Mascis is known for a bombastic guitar tone thundering out of stacks of amps, but in a quieter move, the Dinosaur Jr. frontman has released an ethereal cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You.”

The Squier signature artist’s version of the track is featured in a 7″ picture disc release, which is included in a new footwear pack designed for charity by Dinosaur Jr. in conjunction with L.A.-based clothing company Keep.

The limited edition project (only 360 were produced) features the 7″ picture CD and purple boots with a design inspired by one of Mascis’ guitar strap. Proceeds will benefit the humanitarian efforts of Mata Amritanandamay – known around the world as Amma - and her not-for-profit organization.

You can stream Mascis’ cover of “Fade Into You” and purchase the purple kicks here.
