Gov’t Mule have released two more tracks from their new double album, Shout!.

Actually, they've released two versions of the same song, the slippery, Led Zeppelin-esque "Done Got Wise." One version features only Govt Mule; the other features guest vocalist Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge.

Both versions appear on the album, which features 11 tracks recorded straight up as Warren Haynes & Co., plus the same tracks with guest vocalists. The album will be released September 24 via Blue Note Records.

“One of things we’re very proud of about this record is that all the songs stand up for themselves and have their own personality," Haynes said in a press release for the new album.

"Hopefully, hearing another singer interpret them helps shine even more of a light on the songs and somewhere in that picture people get a glimpse of what Gov’t Mule does."
