Let’s Eat Grandma have shared their contribution to an album of Nick Drake songs, with their re-imagining of ‘From The Morning’.
It follows a previously released Fontaines D.C. cover of ‘Cello Song’. ‘The Endless Coloured Ways – The Songs of Nick Drake’ will be released on 7th July.
In the lead-up to the release of the album, a series of limited edition, double A-side 7-inch singles will be released, featuring a selection of the assembled artists. The series will be completed with a bonus disc consisting of a never previously released recording of Nick Drake singing the Bob Dylan song ‘Tomorrow Is A Long Time’.
The project was the brainchild of Cally Callomon, manager of the Nick Drake Estate and Jeremy Lascelles, co-founder of Blue Raincoat Music and CEO of Chrysalis Records. Speaking about the inspiration for the release, Jeremy explains: “Cally and I embarked on this venture with one simple brief to each of the artists – that they ignore the original recording of Nick’s, and reinvent the song in their own unique style. It was really humbling to hear so many similar responses, with everyone saying how important Nick’s music was to them, and how much they wanted to be part of this project. As the results came in one by one, we were thrilled by the brilliance and invention that each artist had shown. They had done exactly what we hoped for – they had made the song their own.”
