In keeping with Phoebe Bridgers’ annual tradition of releasing a holiday charity single, boygenius have shared a cover of the traditional ballad ‘The Parting Glass’ with Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds. The song was recorded and released in tribute to the late Sinéad O’Connor, who passed away in July at the age of 56. Listen to it below.
Net proceeds from the song will be donated to the Aisling Project, an after-school project working with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area in Dublin, Ireland. The charity was chosen by the Sinéad O’Connor Estate.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Boygenius have chosen to give proceeds from the release to Aisling Project,” said Project leader Mícheál Clear. “It’s an absolute privilege to be associated with the stunningly beautiful homage to Sinead O’Connor and we can’t possibly thank Boygenius enough.”
