We lost Adam Schlesinger to COVID-19 earlier this year and now 30 of his friends and fellow artists have contributed covers to a new tribute album, Saving for a Custom Van. The tribute includes Nada Surf, Ted Leo, Belly's Tanya Donelly & Gail Greenwood, Jeff Rosenstock, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom, Motion City Soundtrack, Charly Bliss, Sad13 (Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz), Apex Manor, Ben Lee & Sarah Silverman, Remember Sports, Mikey Erg, Letters to Cleo's Kay Hanley and more. 100% of the proceeds from the compilation benefit MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Songs come from throughout Schlesinger's career and many projects, from Fountains of Wayne and Ivy, to songs he wrote for films and TV shows. Tanya Donelly & Gail Greenwood cover Ivy's "Undertow"; Nada Surf deliver a lovely version of "Sick Day"; Rachel Bloom turns "Stacy's Mom" into a cabaret torch song; Kay Hanley gives "Radiation Vibe" an electro rework; and Charly Bliss cover "Pretend to Be Nice" from the Josie & The Pussycats soundtrack.
