Michael McDonald joins Grizzly Bear in Doobie Brotherhood on new single

Posted on

Two Grizzly Bear posts in one day? Oh, but Music Mixers, this is, inDoobie-tibly worth it. When not busy entertaining hip-hop’s royal couple, the Brooklyn indie animals are collaborating with another kind of royalty: Michael McDonald.

The B-side of the single “While You Wait for the Others” from May’s Veckatimest, features vocals on the same track as interpreted by the one and only blue-eyed beard-soul legend. For 99 cents, all this can be yours today on iTunes; or on vinyl if you can “bear” the wait (see what we did there? HILARITY!). In the meantime, watch the band performing the song, McDonald-less, on England’s Later with Jools Holland in May, below:
