Stars sing me to sleep

The first Stars song I ever loved was the impossibly beautiful Tonight, from their Nightsongs LP.  It reminded me of a lost Morrissey/Marr composition. So it's only fitting that, 12 years later, Stars gives us a (free) cover of The Smiths' Asleep. The song is federated on a new EP, Far From Home. which also features four "Breakglass" acoustic versions of album tracks. God, this band shimmers and shines.

Thanks to Pop Labyrinth for the tip.
