A Motorcycle for a Horse is a brand new story from acclaimed author and Richmond Fontaine frontman Willy Vlautin. Willy himself reads the story, and you’ll recognise a number of characters from Lean on Pete, his latest novel – Charley Thompson, Lonnie Dixon and the unforgettable Lean on Pete himself.

And this is a real bonus – the story closes with an exclusive track recorded by members of Richmond Fontaine.
