The Bird and the Bee’s Inara George has teamed up with Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters to duet on her new song “Sex In Cars,” the first in a series of her “Road Angel Project” benefit project.
All proceeds raised from the project will go towards Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 fund, which will provide financial assistance for musicians and music industry workers who have lost income during the global pandemic.
I’m a big fan of The Bird and the Bee, and George’s newest release is the perfect preview into more from the famed singer-songwriter.
In a statement, George said: “I always knew I wanted this version of ‘Sex in Cars’ with Dave to benefit some amazing non-profit. As the pandemic hit and it became very clear that live music would not resume for many, many months, I immediately thought of Sweet Relief, not only because they help so many musicians, but also because they help everyone in the music industry.”
“Sex In Cars” first appeared on George’s latest solo three-track project, The Young of Angst, this past June, and the new version features the all-acoustic original accompanied by Grohl’s warm vocals sliding right up alongside George’s as they sing, “Facing up to the blue, I felt the weight of you / You got me saying, hello, hello, hello / Then you write my name on the steamed-up window.”
I can’t stop listening to it — and I love it.
