Over the course of the past year or so, Delaware’s Dogfish Head Brewery has involved itself with musicians like Miles Davis and Del the Funky Homosapien as the impetus for a series of limited release ales. For the latest release, Sixty-One — a hybrid brew that veers into wine territory by adding a touch of Syrah grape must from California to its 60 Minute I.P.A. — the cult beer-maker’s president and founder Sam Calagione recruited “Appalachian post-punk solipsist” and loyal Dogfish Head drinker Bonnie “Prince” Billy (nee Will Oldham) to cut a couple tracks for the launch. Five-hundred vinyl records were pressed to go along with sales of the beer, but you can only get those at Dogfish Head’s brewery and brewpub in Delaware. However, if you just want to listen to the new songs, Grub Street has those straight ahead.

Dogfish Head kindly sent over the two tracks: The first is an Oldham-penned original titled “Sixty-One.” The second has a more Bonnie “Prince” Billy-ized take on the classic, innuendo-heavy Dominoes tune “Sixty-Minute Man.” Grab digital versions of both below.

Update: At the request of Dogfish Head and Will Oldham, we have removed the files.
