Nick Lowe with Wilco - Cruel to Be Kind (7")

Black Friday RSD 2019 release, Vinyl, 7", 45 RPM, Single, Limited Edition, Green vinyl, includes digital download


Nick Lowe’s “Cruel to Be Kind” was first released as a single in 1979 and, thanks to the hook-laden chorus and Lowe’s signature turn of phrase, has never left our ears since. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the power pop gem, Yep Roc is releasing a limited edition 45 single of “Cruel to Be Kind” for Record Store Day Black Friday 2019. The A-side features the classic single and the B-side contains Nick Lowe & Wilco performing the track together in 2012. The Nick Lowe & Wilco cover of “Cruel to Be Kind” has never been previously available in any physical format.


The 45 single arrives on green vinyl and contains a digital download for both songs.
