Joanna Newsom

Covers with a good heart

Joanna NewsomWhile some are celebrating Sufjan Stevens’ old work, others are gathering around the songs of Joanna Newsom, and in both cases, people are acting out of their desire to help. Billy Bragg, Owen Pallett and M Ward are some of the contributors to “Versions of Joanna”, a compilation whose nature is explained in its title. On the album, initiated by Oxfam America, a total of 22 artists offer their particular views on Newsom’s songs, all chosen with her consent. All revenues will go to Oxfam, particularly to the financing of some of the organisation’s humanitarian help projects in Pakistan. “Versions of Joanna” is out (only digitally for now, although there might be a physical release some time soon) now. You can get it in exchange for a donation following this link.
