    Mountain Man has released Mountain Man Sings Wilco, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version of “You and I” from 2009’s Wilco (the album). “We have been band members, collaborators, friends and business partners for over 10 years now,” says the band, “so a song like ‘You and I,’ a celebration of creating a relationship that is totally unique and filled with mystery, seemed very appropriate.” Mountain Man will present a three-night COSMIC PROM of songs from the trio's collective catalog in Durham, NC, January 17–19.
