'Bills & Aches & Blues' unites two generations of artists...

4AD is set to span the decades on new compilation 'Bills & Aches & Blues'.

The label looks back on its four decade span with the 18 track project, in which current 4AD artists trawl the vaults for a series of special covers.

Out digitally on April 2nd, vinyl and CD editions follow on July 23rd before a special vinyl boxset lands later this year.

The title is half-inched from a Cocteau Twins lyric - although Elizabeth Fraser never wrote them down - and Side A has been placed online.

It's turning into a real treasure trove, with Side A alone featuring Tkay Maidza's take on PIXIES' 'Where Is My Mind?' and U.S. Girls rampaging through a Birthday Party cover.

Aldous Harding offers her take on Deerhunter's 'Revival', while The Breeders cover The Dirt Eaters'. Closing with Maria Somerville's 'Seabird', you can check out Side A below.

'Bills & Aches & Blues' will be released on April 2nd.
