Dean Ween is a man of action. We’ll never forget his sold out benefit show at The Saint following Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and when it was time to lend his talents to another great cause, Deaner answered the bell once again.
Following the tragic events in Paris just weeks ago, Eagles of Death Metal launched a covers campaign for The Sweet Stuff Foundation. They encourage artists of all styles to try their hand at covering EODM’s “I Love You All The Time” with the band donating all proceeds from publishing and any other revenue streams to the charity.
EODM co-founder and “my real dad” Josh Homme said, “We are calling upon our friends to donate their time, talent and good will in a show of solidarity to help the victims of these atrocious acts in Paris and those affected by terrorism worldwide. We are asking for you to cover our song ‘I Love You All the Time.’ For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100 percent of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. We ask that you also donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity. In the same spirit, we would encourage you to offer one of your songs up to be covered by another artist, and follow suit – donate the publishing monies to charity – the ‘Play it Forward Initiative.'”
With that Dean Ween, ahead of proper Ween reunion shows in February, turned in his cover in a style that is undeniably his own. My Morning Jacket also got in on the action, playing the song at the Beacon Theatre last weekend. Here’s hoping they formally lay down their own version soon.
