Fontaines D.C. have shared their version of Irish folk song 'I'm A Man You Don't Meet Everyday'.

The band's second album 'A Hero's Death' is riding high in those End Of Year polls, following a year of exceptional acclaim.

New music keeps coming, though, such as this raucous take on an Irish folk classic.

Fontaines D.C. re-work 'I'm A Man You Don't Meet Everyday' for SiriusXMU Sessions, and it's a potent take on the standard.

Stylistically, the band seem to echo The Pogues' rendition, heard on their album 'Rum, Sodomy & The Lash'.

Former Pogues bassist Cáit O'Riordan sang that version, and she tweeted her approval of Fontaines' take.

Tune in now.
