Dry Cleaning, Tkay Maidza, Big Thief and more have all contributed to a new 4AD 40th anniversary compilation

'Bills & Aches & Blues' sees current 4AD acts covering songs from across their back catalogue.

Aldous Harding, Tkay Maidza, U.S. Girls and more have contributed to a brand new compilation to celebrate label 4AD’s 40th anniversary.
