Folk Stars Revisit Nash Album For Tribute
FLEET FOXES star ROBIN PECKNOLD, the RACONTEURS' BRENDAN BENSON and BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY have teamed up to record a tribute to one of their favourite albums.
The trio has recorded tracks for a revamp of Graham Nash's Songs For Beginners - to mark the album's 40th anniversary.
The Crosby, Stills and Nash star recorded the album following the split of his band and his relationship with Joni Mitchell - and it became a classic.
Tracks included Chicago - about a 1968 riot between protesters and soldiers at the Chicago Democratic National Convention - and I Used to Be King, which Nash wrote about his soured relationship with Mitchell.
Benson, Pecknold and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy will all appear on Be Yourself: A Tribute to Graham Nash's Songs for Beginners, when it's released next week (25May10).
The brains behind the project is Nash's daughter Nile, who contributes her renditions of We Can Change the World and Wounded Bird to the album.
