Six-time GRAMMY-nominated trio, boygenius and Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds have released their version of "The Parting Glass" – a gathering song popular in Scotland and Ireland, which was recorded by Sinéad O'Connor in 2002.

Boygenius, Ye Vagabonds and Interscope will donate all net proceeds from the track to the Aisling Project, an after-school project working with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area in Dublin, Ireland, chosen by the Sinéad O’Connor Estate. This release continues Phoebe Bridgers’ tradition of an annual holiday single released for charity.

“We are absolutely thrilled that boygenius have chosen to give proceeds from the release to Aisling Project,” says Project Leader Mícheál Clear. “It's an absolute privilege to be associated with the stunningly beautiful homage to Sinead O'Connor and we can’t possibly thank boygenius enough.”

Aisling Project is an after school intervention program working in five different centres across the whole of Dublin’s suburb of Ballymun, serving over 150 children and young people from the age of 7 to 18+ years. Each child and young person who attends Aisling Project receives a hot meal, and is supported to complete their homework. Aisling Project provides a wide range of ever-expanding activities all in a welcoming, safe, caring and fun-filled environment.

Aisling Project takes a holistic child focused approach and provides a wrap-around approach to care, education, and listening to the voice of the child.

Boygenius and Ye Vagabonds' version of "The Parting Glass" is out now via Interscope.
