EVER NEW is a Bandcamp-exclusive compilation of new music and covers by Canadian artists including Mac DeMarco, Owen Pallett, Jessy Lanza, Ryan Hemsworth, Yves Jarvis, Lydia Ainsworth, Tess Roby, Chad VanGaalen, LAL, Elle Barbara, Sarah Davachi, and more. Named after pioneering singer and composer Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s 1986 song of the same title — reinterpreted here by Toronto experimental duo The Head (Joseph Shabason and Thom Gill) and singer Jennifer Castle — the collection of songs spans diverse genres and voices, with 100% of proceeds going to Black, Indigenous, and LGBTQ2S charities (Black Health Alliance, Indspire, and The 519) doing vital work across the country. EVER NEW was curated by Max Mertens and Sarah Mackenzie, features original artwork by Alex Sheriff, and technical support by Adam Hodgins and LANDR. The compilation received wide media attention including Pitchfork, The Fader, CBC Music, HYPEBEAST, Globe & Mail, Exclaim!, Stereogum and more.
