After recently supporting boygenius on their Irish gig in Dublin Ye Vagabonds have recorded a version of ‘The Parting Glass’ with the trio.

A version of the song was recorded by Sinéad O’Connor in 2002, and the artwork for the song features Sinead, who passed away this past July.
All proceeds from the Interscope-released record will go towards the Aisling Project, an after-school project working with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area in Dublin, Ireland, chosen by the Sinéad O’Connor Estate.
Phoebe Bridgers has released an annual holiday single for charity every year.

Boygenius released their debut album earlier this year and received six Grammy nominations last week including for Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year.
