Bill Callahan Covers Mickey Newbury’s “Heaven Help the Child”

Mar 29th, 2012 in Music

This week, Drag City released a 7′ single featuring two of our favorite performers, Bill Callahan and Mickey Newbury.  We’ve written repeatedly about both.  On the new release, Bill Callahan (who almost never covers other artists’ songs) covers Mickey Newbury’s all-time great 1973 track Heaven Help the Child, backed by Newbury’s stellar original.  To top it off, Drag City and Callahan have released a black and white video of his cover below.  Great stuff.
