While much has changed about music over the past 50 years (artists, genres, popularity, formats, distribution, etc.), one thing remains true: The song is everything. We’re excited to welcome you to the Levi’s® Pioneer Sessions 2010 Revival Recordings. We asked a dozen of our favorite pioneering artists spanning multiple genres to record a song. Further sweetening the deal – each song re-crafted by this amazing roster, including the likes of Nas, The Swell Season, Dirty Projectors and more, is a song that mattered to them in some special way. You’ll find two new songs per week, available as free downloads, over the course of the following six weeks. Each song is paired with exclusive photos, behind-the-scenes video and additional content that celebrates the enduring importance of the song and the influence it has across generations.Please enjoy the behind the scenes footage of two of my favourite artists, Glen Hansard (The Swell Season) and Jason Mraz, but be sure to check out the website to sign up for your free downloads and check out the other offerings.
