Ryan Adams contributes to new covers album

Although happen you won’t see many of the other names on AUK anytime soon. Also, Cyndi Lauper’s Christmas Conga must rank in the top 100 worst songs ever recorded. Stereogum reports: “Earlier this year, Tegan And Sara announced that they would be releasing a The Con covers album in honor of its 10th anniversary. Today, they’ve released the list of who is covering what and it’s pretty wild! Ryan Adams, Hayley Williams, CHVRCHES, Bleachers, Shura, Shamir, Mykki Blanco, Cyndi Lauper, and more are all contributing, plus there’s a team-up between Grimes and Hana called Trashique. The Con X: Covers will be out digitally on 10/20 and on vinyl 12/22. Proceeds from the album will go towards the Tegan And Sara Foundation. Here’s the tracklist:
