‘I Remember Everything’, the last song John Prine recorded before dying of COVID-19 in April, has been released alongside a music video. Check it out below.
Produced by Dave Cobb, the track is a solo acoustic cut that sees Prine singing: “I remember every town/And every hotel room/Every song I ever sang/On a guitar out of tune.”
“Got no future in my happiness/ Though, regrets are very few,” he continues. “Sometimes a little tenderness/ Was the best that I could do.”
A livestream tribute to Prine organized by his family took place last night titled Picture Show: A Tribute Celebrating John Prine. It featured performances from the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson, Kurt Vile, Jason Isbell, Jim James, Dan Auerbach, Bonnie Raitt, and more. The stream was also a fundraiser for the organizations NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), Make the Road New York (an organization that supports workers, immigrants, and the LGBTQ+ community), and Alive (which provides counseling to people who’ve lost a loved one to coronavirus).
The iconic singer-songwriter was 73 years old when he passed away on April 7. He is survived by his wife, Fiona Whelan Prine.
