The Hold Steady have announced that they will be releasing a crowdfunded covers EP and an album in 2014.

The EP will consist of five tracks, one chosen by each member of the band, and will be released on vinyl. There are various incentives as well as copies of the EP for those wishing to back the project including handwritten lyric sheets, a musical tour of Minneapolis, house shows or even the chance to go jogging with Craig Finn.

The band also announced that they will be releasing a full album at some point in 2014.
