Les Claypool is sharing another cut from his new side project, Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang . The band is offering a preview of their bluegrass interpretation of Alice in Chains ’ 1991 hit single, "Man in the Box," which you can hear at SPIN.com .
While the Primus frontman didn’t provide much information about why he decided to cover the track, he tells the publication his version is "a tribute to my buddy [Alice in Chains guitarist] Jerry Cantrell ."
Duo de Twang’s debut album, Four Foot Shack , arrives at all the usual outlets on February 4. It includes one new track, along with a variety of covers from his own catalog and cuts from The Bee Gees , 1960s rockers The Chantays , and late country singer/songwriter Jerry Reed .
Claypool is currently out on tour with Primus overseas, but he’ll be back with Duo de Twang for a string of North American dates next month. That outing begins on February 27 at The Heath at McKittrick Hotel in New York City. Visit LesClaypool.com for the full itinerary.
