“It is time for this phase of Bloodshot Records to come to an end,” says Bloodshot co-founder Rob Miller.
It include songs by Emmylou Harris, Arcade Fire, Lorde, Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Billie Eilish, and more.
”We’ve been out in this world trying to be as cautious as possible, as cautious as I’ve been in 18 months, and we still had to cancel 5 shows,” AC Newman writes.
