Groups from Canvasback Music, Atlantic Records and Parlophone including alt-J, Grouplove, Benjamin Scheuer and many more have come together for an acoustic performance of Bob Dylan’s ‘Shelter From the Storm.’
The cover which also featured Jealous of the Birds, Benjamin Scheuer and Sofia D’Angelo (MICHELLE) joined forces for a great cause which is MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund and Help Musicians UK, which is helping musicians and tour crews who have been affected by the pandemic.
“When Canvasback came to us with the idea to collaborate on a more well known Dylan song with our labelmates we were so down,” Grouplove said in a statement. “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.”
“We are really happy to be involved in this project,” Alt-J said in a statement. “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.”
