Moz follows up last year's "heartfelt" (Rolling Stone) cover of the Pretenders' "Back on the Chain Gang" with a covers album of ‘60s and ‘70s protest songs. "One of the most influential figures in the history of British pop" (BBC) takes on luminaries of the era (Joni Mitchell, Dionne Warwick, Bob Dylan) while also delving into the likes of early gay icon Jobriath and political activist Phil Ochs. The collection boasts collaborations with alt-rock royalty Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear), Sameer Gadhia (Young the Giant), and LP.
