The compilation will also feature a number of remixes, live recordings, and a bunch of covers. Covers include Hayley William's take on Broadcast's "Colour Me In", Matt Berninger's cover of The Roches' "In Between Days", Soccer Mommy's version of Saving Jane's "Girl Next Door", Weyes Blood's take on Joni Mitchell's "River", a cover of Joni Mitchell's "People’s Parties" by Real Estate, Robin Pecknold's version of The Roches' "Hammond Song", and Alex G's rendition of True Widow's "Skull Eyes".
