You Be My Heart is a new compilation featuring Mark Kozelek, Marissa Nadler, Fruit Bats, Bowerbirds, among others, and whose proceeds benefit 826 National, a nonprofit that helps under-resourced students improve and explore their writing skills. While the LP does boast a number of guests, each of its 16 tracks were originally written by 826 National volunteer Devon Reed. Take a listen to Mark Kozelek’s contribution, a mournfully pensive cut titled “I Know”, below.
You Be My Heart is officially out on December 9th.
In related news, Mark Kozelek will issue his sixth Sun Kil Moon album, Benji, on February 4th via Caldo Verde. He’s got quite the track record for this sort of thing, dotchaknow.
