First Aid Kit has released a cover of Willie Nelson’s timeless classic as a benefit for Crew Nation.
“We’re excited to release our version of “On The Road Again” by Willie Nelson. We recorded this cover a couple of years ago and recently found it while digging through the archives. The song is a country classic, it feels like we’ve known it forever. Because of the situation with COVID, sadly, the theme of the song has never felt more relevant than it does today.
We made a video for the song using cellphone footage from our tours throughout the years. Going through all those videos made us emotional. It made us realize how much we appreciate being able to roam freely around the world. How much we love the feeling of playing live for people, in the flesh. How much we miss our incredible band and crew.
All the proceeds from the streaming of the song will go to Crew Nation. So much of the magic happens behind the stage. It’s easily taken for granted, but without our touring and venue crew live music wouldn’t be possible. It’s important that we help them out right now. Oh, how we wish we could get back on the road again! Hopefully, we’ll see you down the road sometime soon.”

Lia says, “‘Hymn’ touches on my relationship with ‘the muse,’ or spirituality, or love — how I receive inspiration and give it back via the magic and mystery of the creative process, exposing both my introverted and extroverted self to the listener— which both exist as highly charged opposites in my art and personality.” “Hymn” was written at her home on Moon Mountain in Sonoma, CA. It was produced by JR White (Girls, Tobias Jesso Jr) and mixed by Chris Coady. https://liaices.com/
