Donovan Treated to Tribute Album Featuring the Flaming Lips, Sharon Van Etten
Published Jul 22, 2015Classic Scottish folkie Donovan is about to become the latest artist to be toasted with a tribute album. The 15-song covers album Gazing with Tranquility: A Tribute to Donovan will be out on October 16 through Rock the Cause Records.
The album includes some notable contributors like the Flaming Lips, Sharon Van Etten, Hamilton Leithauser of the Walkmen, Astronautalis, Ivan & Alyosha, and Mixd Up Kidz (a.k.a. former Replacements drummer Chris Mars). See the tracklist down below; it's bookended by two different versions of the 1968 hit "Atlantis."
Gazing with Tranquility is a charitable effort, since all proceeds will go to Huntington's Hope with the goal of helping kids with Huntington's Disease.
Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
