Last month, we premiered Speedy Ortiz’s cover of TV On the Radio’s “Young Liars”, which the band contributed to Lionfish Music’s charitable compilation Cover Your Ass Vol. 1. The compilation drops today, and, according to Lionfish, 100% of its profits will be donated to Planned Parenthood, an organization which has been shown little love by the Trump administration. You can stream it in full below via Spotify.
In addition to Speedy Ortiz, the compilation features covers of Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” by Deerhoof and Pointer Sisters’ “Yes We Can Can” by Cass McCombs, along with contributions from (Sandy) Alex G, Hinds, Porches., and The Lemon Twigs.
“The goal of this series is simply to make a difference for a cause that we feel very strongly about: women’s basic rights to reproductive freedom and affordable health care for those who need it,” says Lionfish Music in a press release. “We need to start covering our own asses now. We need to organize and mobilize. It’s time to make a positive impact. Music is one of the most universal means of using one’s voice to embody beliefs, and it’s time for us all to speak up.”
