Derek Webb – Democracy Vol 1 #4

6th May 10 (Thu) Leave a comment Go to comments

One a month in 2010… a little late for April, but not too late…

Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 is rolling along… This month, it’s Gnarls Barkley‘s “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul.” I dig the less stripped down, more produced version of this compared to past Democracy Vol 1 issues… worth the slight delay.

Speaking of the delay, Derek’s hometown of Nashville has been through a lot recently with the flooding.  Please help out if you can by donating your time or money.  Check out Hands On Nashville for more information:

For those not in the know, Democracy Vol 1 was part of the Stockholm Syndrome pre-order package, but you can still join in over at the DW store. My plea for Derek to cover Tori Amos’ “Crucify” is likely not gonna happen. Oh well… I like the first four months’ output regardless.

  • January: The Beatles – While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  • February: Coldplay – Fix You
  • March: Bob Dylan – The Times They Are A-Changin’
  • April: Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul

If you missed the Derek & Jennifer Knapp tour, check out my review and photos from the Portland Oregon show at the Aladdin Theater on April 27th.

Democracy Vol. 1 is the first in a series of subscription based albums of cover songs that Derek will be recording annually, starting January 2010. Those who participate will not only receive the exclusive album, but will democratically decide what songs Derek will record.

Ever wished you could hear Derek cover your favorite Beatles song? Or Backstreet Boys song? Or even re-record your favorite old Caedmon’s Call song? Here’s your chance. Songs will be nominated and voted down to 12. Derek will record them (demo quality) and deliver them digitally (320kbps MP3s), one song per month for 12 months. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unique collaborative project with Derek Webb!
