Song of the Day: 'Here Comes Your Man' by Tanya Donelly

The wonderful Tanya Donelly has been releasing one new cover song each Sunday to raise money for coronavirus-related charities. It began with Marianne Faithful's "As Tears Go By," which was a fitting start given that the legendary British songstress has been battling Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. Next came Labi Siffre's "Bless the Telephone" and then Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds," which featured the Belly frontwoman's two daughters on backing vocals. (One of them looks scarily like AN ADULT!) And then came this past Sunday's contribution, perhaps the finest one yet: a cover of the Pixies' best-known song, which of course featured her former Breeders bandmate Kim Deal!

Enjoy all four and find Tanya on Bandcamp HERE.

Love this and Tanya. BTW the club shown in the video - Great Scott - is a much beloved Boston venue that announced last week it was closing not because it wasn't successful but because the landlord can make more money selling the property (probably to be converted into condos). :-(
