Father John Misty and Jonathan Wilson to release cover EPs on Bandcamp tomorrow

02 July 2020, 16:11 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

As part of Bandcamp waiving its revenue shares tomorrow, Father John Misty and Jonathan Wilson will both be releasing fundraising cover EP's.

Anthem +3 will be Father John Misty's digital covers EP, and will see him cover Leonard Cohen, Yusuf/Cat Stevens and Link Wray. The EP will be available on Bandcamp from tomorrow (3 July), and will be made available across all other DSP's from 14 July.

Father John Misty recorded his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Anthem" with Jonathan Wilson a few weeks ago at Wilson's Fivestar Studios in Topanga, California. Proceeds from the EP will be donated to CARE Action and Ground Game LA.

Jonathan Wilson is also releasing a covers EP titled The Way I Feel & More, which will see him cover songs by Gordon Lightfoot, The Four Tops, Moby Grape and Bill Fay.

Wilson says of his covers EP, "So I’ve put together an EP... It’s a collection of covers I love: Bill Fay, Gordon Lightfoot, Moby Grape, and The Four Tops. I’m so happy to share it with y’all. It’s available exclusively on Bandcamp to benefit MusiCares Covid-19 Fund. MusiCares is an organization that my fellow musicians lean on and need now more than ever. When it comes to raising awareness and money for MusiCares I always think of my friend and someone I love recording with - the great Gerald Johnson, the bass master from CSNY and the Steve Miller Band. When he had issues with his health as a lifetime session musician, MusiCares was there and made it possible for my friend to get the proper treatment he deserves. Long live MusiCares, and each download of my EP will help their noble cause in our musical community."

  1. Anthem (Leonard Cohen)
  2. Fallin’ Rain (Link Wray)
