Two bands, two countries, two kinds of hits.

You want hits? You got ’em. And in more ways than one. The first way: Canadian pop-rockers Barenaked Ladies just announced they’re releasing a new vinyl anthology titled Original Hits, Original Stars. When does it come out, you ask? Tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow. Love them or loathe them, you can’t accuse BNL of going overboard on the hype. The second way: Tex-Mex vets The Mavericks — who have dropped a couple of cover-tune singles lately — surprised no one by confirming that they’ll issue a rootsy covers album titled Play the Hits on Nov. 1. Click below to hear their latest offering — a groovy Vegas-style take on the Waylon Jennings classic Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way? — and scroll down to see the rest of today’s newbies. And don’t forget to check the Upcoming Releases page for everything coming down the pipe.
