Part of the tribute album for Adam Green where Devendra has participation.
Last October it was revealed to us that various musicians would be collaborating on an album honoring the career and life of Adam Greenwe were already able to listen to the songs that Sean Ono Lennon, Ben Kweller and Vincent Delerm They covered it for the album, now it’s time to listen “Pay the Toll” versioned by Devendra Banhart.
The song is very different from what we had heard before, it has more ethereal and relaxed touches than the original version. Without a doubt, it seems like a topic that Devendra He would compose from scratch for some project of his. A simple and calm guitar, the characteristic voice of Devendra and a barely perceptible piano in the background make this one of the favorite songs on the album.
Adam is funny, he really makes me laugh, but what’s even funnier is that, as oblique and hyper-symbolic as his work can be, from the moment I first heard it over 20 years ago, I thought ‘ ahh, this makes sense’…we are true twins and that deep affinity I have for him is one of the things that keeps me going. It’s not nepotism when you love the person and the job, it’s just the best. I love Adam,” Devendra stated in a press release.
Moping in Style: A Tribute to Adam Green will be released on December 1st via Org Musicbut while that happens give the version of Devendra and let yourself be captivated by the sounds it has to offer us in this well-deserved tribute to Adam Green.
