When The Swell Season's Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova chose to cover a track for Levi's Pioneer Sessions, Hansard knew just the song for them -- Candi Staton's 1976 hit "Young Hearts Run Free."

"When I was a kid, my mother used to play [Staton's] records while she was cleaning up the house," the singer says. "She taught us the lyrics of the song, and when I sang it [again], I really thought of her. It's one of those tunes everyone knows -- it's common language and just a great tune," Hansard adds.
