J Mascis releases Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers cover

J Mascis, best known as the singer, guitarist songwriter for Dinosaur Jr., has released a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ ‘Don’t Do Me Like That’.

The cover comes as Mascis prepare to embark on a solo tour having released his new album Elastic Days. The tour will take Mascis to Japan before heading to UK to play Brighton, London, Leeds, Liverpool and more.

Channeling his inner-Petty, Mascis takes on Don’t Do Me Like That’, a track taken from The Heartbreakers‘ album Damn the Torpedoes which was released in 1979.
