The Replacements will be releasing a covers EP.
From the ArticleIn late September, singer Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson spent a day in a Minneapolis studio and cut four cover songs that will be released later this year as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl EP. All 250 copies will auctioned online, and the proceeds will benefit Slim Dunlap, the Replacements' guitarist from 1987 to 1991, who had a severe stroke in February.

Way more excited for this than I should be. Also I wouldn't mind a reunion album/tour even if it's just the two of them, but I know I might be outnumbered there among 'Mats fans haha.
