A handful of acts on Canvasback, Parlophone and Transgressive have teamed up for a Bob Dylan cover.
The new take on ‘Shelter From The Storm’ features alt-J, Grouplove, Jealous of the Birds, Briston Maroney, Benjamin Scheuer and Sofia D’Angelo (MICHELLE), raising money for Help Musicians UK and Music Cares (in the US).
Alt-J comment: “We are really happy to be involved in this project. It’s lovely to get to play music with musicians on the same label as us; some of whom we know, some of whom we don’t. It was a new challenge recording this at home separately, even separately from each other, but we think the result is lovely and we hope that it brings a smile to people’s faces at this tricky time. Lots of love.”
Grouplove add: “When Canvasback came to us with the idea to collaborate on a more well known Dylan song with our labelmates we were so down. It’s always satisfying to go outside of your comfort zone and try something new, especially during these trying times – not to mention attempting to memorize 10 verses.”
