Death Cab for Cutie has announced a new covers EP. On Friday, the band will release The Georgia EP exclusively through Bandcamp for 24 hours. It includes covers of songs by TLC, Neutral Milk Hotel and R.E.M. (all of whom are from Georgia!), and proceeds from the sale of the EP will benefit voting rights organization Fair Fight Action.
“We created this exclusive EP of songs by some of our favorite Georgia artists for our friend Stacey Abrams and all the hard-working people at Fair Fight Action,” says Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard in a statement about the initiative. “We strongly believe in the work Fair Fight has done to assure free and fair elections in Georgia and beyond and have been honored to assist them throughout the 2020 campaign.” Check out the tracklist below.
