Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Sinéad O’Connor, and more have contributed new covers to God Don’t Never Change: The Songs Of Blind Willie Johnson, a tribute album to the 1920s blues singer. The project originally began as a Kickstarter campaign, and is now being released via Alligator Records. Waits and Williams both did two covers each — “The Soul Of A Man” and “John The Revelator” for the former, “It’s Nobody’s Fault But Mine” and “God Don’t Never Change” for the latter. O’Connor covered “Trouble Will Soon Be Over,” and the rest of the album features the Blind Boys Of Alabama, Cowboy Junkies, and more. Listen to the full stream via Pitchfork below.
God Don’t Never Change: The Songs Of Blind Willie Johnson is out 2/26 via Alligator.
