Kevin Morby has released new single ‘Beautiful Strangers’ in memory of the victims of the Orlando shootings and to support the work of Everytown for Gun Safety.
The single is now available via all digital service providers, including Bandcamp and is accompanied by a Townes Van Zandt cover, ‘No Place To Fall.’
Read Morby’s statement accompanying the song below and enjoy the tranquil beauty of ‘Beautiful Strangers’ above:
This release is dedicated to and written for all the people I have never met but have only read about. The innocent people who were out living their lives and one day, without warning, had them taken away from them. People who liked to laugh, dance, and love in the way that we all do, but cant anymore. All those names and faces, all those beautiful strangers…
So here are two songs, “Beautiful Strangers” as well as my cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “No Place To Fall” that I have been closing my live show with over the past year. Any purchase of these two songs will go to support the work of Everytown For Gun Safety – an organization I have followed for quite some time. I believe in and support them in their efforts to make the world a safer place. So if you wish – you can donate as little or large as you’d like and I do hope you enjoy the songs. Do it for the kids.
Love and peace,
