Gov't Mule are readying their new album Shout! for a September 24th release, and they've brought along quite a few friends. The Southern rockers laid down 11 new tracks for their first studio album in four years, and they also brought in the likes of My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, and Toots Hibbert of Toots and the Maytals for a special second disc featuring those artists' interpretations of the new Gov't Mule tracks. Gov't Mule still leads the way on disc two, but they let their friends take the vocal reigns for entirely different looks at their brand new jams.

1) "World Boss" w/ Ben Harper
2) "Funny Little Tragedy" w/ Elvis Costello
3) "Stoop So Low" w/ Dr. John
4) "Captured" w/ Jim James
5) "Whisper In Your Soul" w/ Grace Potter
6) "Scared To Live" w/ Toots Hibbert
