The War On Drugs have shared a cover of Warren Zevon's 1978 track "Accidentally Like A Martyr" as they continue to prepare for the release of new record A Deeper Understanding.

This cover won't actually appear on the band's new album - it's part of a session recorded at Spotify Studios NYC.

The Philly group have unveiled "Pain", "Strangest Thing", "Holding On", and 11-minute comeback "Thinking Of A Place" as they tease their first new full-length since our Album Of The Year 2014, Lost In The Dream.

The War On Drugs have lots of live dates planned for this year, including a stop at London's Alexandra Palace in November. Find out more.
