"How To Rent a Room" is Chura's first release since dropping her Midnight record in June.
The cover pays tribute to the late David Berman, who passed away on 7 August.
Chura has performed the Silver Jews cover during live shows, but has today released a cover of the track with a portion of proceeds being donated to MusiCares.
Speaking about her cover, Chura says, ""How To Rent a Room" has always been one of those songs that I could never let go of. Ever since the first time I heard it it’s always been one of my favourite songs and remains one that imprinted me as a young songwriter."
She adds, "Now, in light of his death, the lyrics take on a new and much sadder meaning. At the time they seemed conceptual, but the line "Now there’s a lot of things that I’m gonna miss, like the thunder down country and the way water drips" is now a haunting and deeply poetic rendering of everyday minutiae and the texture of our lives that we don’t appreciate on a daily basis. The song seems nostalgic for a life he was currently living, and how important it can feel to mean something to someone. Or at least that's my interpretation."
