All you need to do is click here and visit the site, give Courtney a few personal details about yourself and you’ll be given the chance to download the track straight away, which is rather jolly.

Seattle trio The Cave Singers bring their second album ’Welcome Joy’ to the masses on August 17 2009.
Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Ladyhawk), the album is far richer and more interesting sounding than their debut (2007’s ’Invitation Songs’) and sees the band perform their dramatic, forlorn and occasionally triumphant music in a wonderfully autumnal haze.
