Jagjaguwar’s ‘Join The Ritual’ 25th Anniversary Album Includes Jamila Woods Covering ‘Fast Car’

The influential independent label Jagjaguwar is celebrating their 25th anniversary with a covers album, titled Join The Ritual, featuring plenty of artists they’ve signed over the years. The likes of Angel Olsen, Bruce Hornsby, Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade) and Jamila Woods have all joined in to cover songs that reflect influences on themselves as artist or the label as a whole. So far, the label has shared Bruce Hornsby doing “Feel The Pain,” a Dinosaur Jr. cover, and Jamila Woods covering Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” You can hear Jamila’s version of that classic above, and Hornsby doing his best Dinosaur Jr. below.
