DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Tampa-based Ries Brothers, on the eve of dropping their sophomore album, collaborated with members of The Lumineers, Gary Clark Jr., Steve Miller Band, and Iration to perform a mashup of Police songs.

They are calling it a "coVIDeo." The mashup features "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and "So Lonely."

The duo is known for their chill sound (a blend of rock, blues, funk, and reggae). The two brothers have toured with Chicago and G Love and opened for 311 and Daughtry.
