Later this year, Fennesz will appear alongside Taylor Deupree on the second volume of ‘Allen Ginsberg’s The Fall of America’.
This exciting tribute celebrates the 50th Anniversary of beloved poet Allen Ginsberg’s “The Fall of America: Poems of these States”, 1965-1971. In the fall of 2020 with the 50th anniversary of those poems fast approaching the curators of this release reached out to many of Allen’s musician and artist friends. Many responded enthusiastically about interpreting these poems to music; even those poems that presented more of a musical challenge. All proceeds will be donated to HeadCount.org, an organisation which promotes voter registration and participation in democracy through the power of music.
The first volume, featuring Thurston Moore & Lee Ranaldo, Angélique Kidjo, Devendra Banhart, Yo La Tengo and more is available from allenginsberg.bandcamp.com
