Dana Gavanski has released a cover of King Crimson's "I Talk To The Wind", and will be donating all proceeds to community-led charity Black Health Alliance.
Gavanski's cover of King Crimson's "I Talk To The Wind" is her first release since her March debut album Yesterday Is Gone.
She says of her choice to cover the track, "One of the first records I ever bought in my late teens was King Crimson’s In The Court of the Crimson King, a prog rock masterpiece. It was the first time I heard this song and was a super important record for me. It also has this amazing raging mad album cover depicting the Schizoid Man…"
Gavanski adds, "I eventually sold my small collection of albums before leaving for Montreal and kind of forgot about King Crimson for some time. I only got back into them early last year… Ian McDonald’s beautiful flute solos throughout the song, the mellow vocals and symphonic arrangements all come together to make it a really cool moody tune. Another version of the song I love, maybe even a bit more, is by Giles, Giles and Fripp featuring Judy Dyble’s vocals."
The musician will also be donating all proceeds from digital sales on Bandcamp to Black Health Alliance, "All digital sales I make today will go towards Black Health Alliance, a community led charity that works to improve the health and lives of black communities in Canada."
