Ethan and Maya Hawke Cover Willie Nelson’s ‘We Don’t Run’

    The father-daughter duo of Ethan and Maya Hawke have shared a cover of Willie Nelson’s ‘We Don’t Run’. It will appear on a new compilation celebrating the archival label Light in the Attic, Light in the Attic & Friends, to be released exclusively for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 24. The track features Christian Lee Hutson on a number of instruments, including electric guitar and Wurlitzer. Listen to it and find the full tracklist below.

    “This song is off Willie’s brilliant album Spirit, which has been a mainstay in our home since it was released in 1996,” Ethan Hawke said in a statement. “Everybody needs a good anthem song. This is one of the best.”

    “We believe that an essential component of archival work, aside from simply honoring the music, is to seek ways in which to bring fresh perspectives, context, and reverence to the original artists and their work,” Light in the Attic founder Matt Sullivan commented.
