The sad passing of Frightened Rabbit’s Richard Swift shook the music community. Now they’ve got together to react positively to such negative news with a single subscription series in honour of the late singer.
The 7″ vinyl series called Fug Yep Soundation has now launched in memory of Swift, with the aim of the series directed to raise awareness for addicition and “bring community to those suffering” by donating to musician-focused organizations MusiCares and Music Support UK.
The series will also look to directly support Swift’s family, with Fug Yep’s first release being the 7” vinyl of Lucius’ ‘Christmas Time is Here/Keep Me Hanging On,’ which as well as doing all the artwork, Swift produced, recorded, and mixed.
The Black Keys Dan Auerbach, the Shins’ James Mercer, Damien Jurado, Pure Bathing Culture, Fruit Bats, and others are slated to participate in the Fug Yep Soundation.
Out December 7, it’s available for preorder now. Listen to ‘Christmas Time is Here’ below.
