Anyone remember where we parked the van?

After you read our interview with the Swell Season's Glen Hansard, head on over to Levi's Pioneer Sessions to download the group's cool cover of Candi Staton's "Young Hearts Run Free."

Staton is one of the '70s greatest soul singers. She's also one of the most unrecognized and underrated.

"Young Hearts Run Free" was her biggest hit, released in 1976 just as disco was making waves. It's a groove-oriented song (translation: you shake, shake, shake your booty to it), and oh so good.

The Swell Season put their own spin on this classic. So you should download it. It's free.

Then you should be sure to get tickets for their House of Blues show on Sunday.—Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
