HAIM, Feist, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Matt Sweeney, Sad13, and more performed in a livestream Cat Stevens tribute concert that took place yesterday (December 5). HAIM offered their take on ‘Hard Headed Woman’, from 1970’s Tea For The Tillerman, while Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Matt Sweeney covered ‘But I Might Die Tonight’, Sad13 did ‘Trouble’, and Dave Matthews covered ‘Father & Son’. Feist performed her rendition of ‘Trouble’, a track she also covered last month as part of Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires festival. Check out the entire livestream below.
“It’s great to see and hear these covers of my songs given new life,” Yusuf / Cat Stevens wrote in a statement. “There’s no better honour for a songwriter than to have his songs performed by talented musicians with such love and sincerity. Thank you.”
