LYDIA LOVELESS'S "VERLAINE SHOT RIMBAUD" IS ROLLING STONE'S DAILY DOWNLOAD

Lydia Loveless's new song "Verlaine Shot Rimbaud," from her highly anticipated upcoming album Somewhere Else (out 2/18) is today's free Daily Download on RollingStone.com

Lydia sez: "I was trying to reinterpret a Verlaine poem, for way too long, then I got mad and started yelling stuff. Because I was drinking wine, I played a C chord wrong, resulting in a really cool thing happening at about 2:35. Jay played a really cool steel part. Bam."
