    The newly reformed Afghan Whigs are on a roll after releasing their first new song in 13 years, "See and Don't See" and assembling a lauded comeback tour. So why not add to that fire by covering a track from one of this year's most popular and talented R&B singers, Frank Ocean? According to the band, they've been covering "Lovecrimes" ever since reuniting earlier this year, and it's not hard to believe. The cover is filled with epic sweeps and ambition that is characteristic of the Whigs. The track is from Ocean's first release, his 2011 mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra. Download the track below, compare it to Frankie's original, and check out newly added dates on The Afghan Whigs extensive comeback tour after the jump.
