Daniel Avery has released a new song called ‘Lone Swordsman’, dedicated to the late DJ and producer Andrew Weatherall, who died in February at the age of 56. All proceeds from the song’s Bandcamp sales will be directed to Amnesty International in Weatherall’s memory. Listen to the track below.
“I was in my studio the morning I heard about Andrew Weatherall’s passing,” Avery said in a statement. “The track “Lone Swordsman” is what formed that day. Andrew was a hero, a friend and someone who regularly reminded us all how it should be done, not to mention the funniest fucker around. Proceeds from this record will be donated to Amnesty International in his memory. Thank you for everything.”
The A-side of the ‘Lone Swordsman’ single features ‘Dusting for Smoke’, a track from Avery’s latest album Love + Light, which was released back in June.
