Continuing her annual tradition of releasing holiday charity singles, Phoebe Bridgers has recruited fellow boygenius members Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker along with the Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds for a cover of the popular traditional ballad “The Parting Glass.” Stream it below.
All net proceeds from the track will go to the Aisling Project, an after school intervention program that works with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area of Dublin. The charity was chosen by the Estate of the late Sinéad O’Connor, who recorded her own version of the song in 2002.
“We are absolutely thrilled that boygenius have chosen to give proceeds from the release to Aisling Project,” said Project Leader Mícheál Clear in a press statement. “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.”
boygenius recently performed on SNL after racking up seven nominations at the 2024 Grammys, including Album of the Year for their debut full-length, the record, and Record of the Year for “Not Strong Enough.”
