Chrysalis Records has released a new Nick Drake tribute album titled Endless Colorful Roads – Nick Drake songs, which includes contributions from Liz Phair, Feist, Radiohead’s Philip Selway, and more. Play it below on Spotify and Apple Music.
The anthology features 23 interpretations of some of Drake’s most beloved tracks, performed by various artists such as Ben Harper, Fontaines DC, Bombay Bicycle Club and more, spread out over two LPS/CDs. The idea for the album came from Cally Callomon, who manages Nick Drake’s estate, Blue Raincoat Music co-founder and Chrysalis Records CEO Jeremy Lascelles.
“Nick Drake had no interest in promoting himself as an artist, but I think he would have been thrilled to hear his art has been revisited and newly promoted by so many vibrant and talented artists,” Calumon said of the tribute.
To top it all off, a select number of songs are accompanied by short films directed by award-winning film director, photographer, and sound artist Bill Jackson. Check out the trailer below.
