They’ve been away for a bit, but California indie band Cold War Kids are back in action this year.

The band’s set to release their fourth album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, on April 2, and they’ve already debuted the lead single “Miracle Mile” to stir up excitement.  Now they’ve got a new treat for you: a cover of the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds song “Opium Tea,” which you can hear exclusively here.

But wait, didn’t Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds just release an album as well? They did! So everyone’s a winner here. Listen to the Cold War Kids’ take on the Cave classic below:
