His Name Is Alive
4AD turned 40 last year and, in a bit of a delayed celebration, the label has just announced that next month they’re releasing a covers compilation called Bills & Aches & Blues. It features 18 artists that are currently on their roster covering songs from 4AD’s storied history. Contributors include the Breeders, Bradford Cox, Big Thief, Jenny Hval, Bing And Ruth, Future Islands, and more. The whole compilation will be available 4/2 but every week until then 4AD will share a segment of the songs that are on it.
