While the world awaits the outcome of the 2020 election cliffhanger, Jason Isbell has dangled a musical carrot for the blue team.
If Joe Biden takes Georgia, Isbell will cut a tribute album to the Peach State, with all proceeds going to a good cause.
In the small hours of Friday morning (Nov. 6), the race for Georgia was still too tight to call. Everything is on the line and there’s no overtime in this game.
Should Biden complete a come-from-behind win, Isbell tweeted, “I’m gonna make a charity covers album of my favorite Georgia songs- REM, Gladys Knight, Vic Chesnutt, Allmans, Cat Power, Precious Bryant, Now It’s Overhead, etc… And damn is that gonna be fun.”
The Alabama native’s offer captured Twitter’s heart and got a lot of love from the artist community. Richard Marx responded, “F—ing love this.”
Brandi Carlile chimed in and asked if they could do “Kid Fears” by the Indigo Girls and Jason would sing the Michael Stipe part.
Don’t bet against that charity covers album coming to fruition. At 2.45am ET, president Trump’s lead over Biden in Georgia narrowed to just 665 votes, with a few thousand ballots yet to be counted.
Isbell is known for his solo career, his work with The 400 Unit, and as a former member of Drive-By Truckers, and has four Grammy Awards to his name.
Dim the lights, hit the strobes and spin the mirrorball: Kylie Minogue’s Disco is open for business.
Over her decades-long career, the Australian singer has dabbled in bubblegum pop, indie, and — with 2018’s Golden – country music.
Her latest LP, Disco, is a glittery throwback to the glorious dancefloors of Studio 54, when Donna Summer was queen and Chic was giving us good times.
Speaking to fellow antipodean Zane Lowe on Apple Music earlier this week, Kylie shared her vision for a Disco tour, whenever that may be. “It’s a dreamscape right now, the idea of touring, if, when, how, if, when, why, what. But my vision I have, whether this would come to be or not, is usually the concert is… I’ve never performed in the Round,” she enthused.
The Melbourne native imagines “the biggest disco ball ever made” dominating the ultimate superclub. “And I just would love the idea of a show where almost people don’t feel like they have to look at what’s going on on stage. We’re just all at a big nightclub.”
The pop princess performed songs from it during last month’s global streaming event Kylie: Infinite Disco, co-directed by Kate Moross and Rob Sinclair.
Disco features the previously releases tracks “Magic” and “I Love It” and it’s Minogue’s 15th studio album. She’s an icon in Australia and the U.K., where she has seven chart-topping singles and 51 Top 40 hits. All told, she has ruled the U.K. albums chart with seven titles, including Golden and her 2018 retrospective Step Back In Time. In Australia, Kylie has five No. 1 albums, and she was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2011 by then prime minister Julia Gillard.
