Dirty Projectors cover John Lennon’s “Isolation” to benefit COVID-19 relief fund
Dirty Projectors have shared a cover of John Lennon's "Isolation," with Dave Longstreth delivering a passionate if spare rendition of the song from 1970's John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album. David notes that proceeds from Bandcamp sales through April 3 go to MusiCares' COVID-19 relief fund, "for musicians and music industry folks whose work has been disrupted by the crisis." You can listen below.
It's a good choice for a couple of reasons: isolation is on everyone's minds these days, plus it's very well timed with a good portion of the world rolling their eyes at celebrities covering Lennon's "Imagine". Did Dave bang this out this afternoon? Regardless, it's for a good cause.
