The Bird and The Bee vocalist Inara George has teamed with Dave Grohl for a duet version of the track “Sex In Cars” from George’s latest release “The Youth of Angst.” It’s the first in a series of planned Road Angel Project singles, which will see all proceeds donated via a partnership with Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The COVID-19 Relief Fund at Sweet Relief provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who have lost income due to the global pandemic.
“Having been such a massive fan of Inara for years, it’s always such an incredible honor to work with her, whether on Foo Fighters music or for The Bird and The Bee,” Grohl says. “Her voice is timeless, so pure and real. So I jumped at the chance to duet with her on this song. It was a dream come true! And for a great cause: Musicians coming together to support each other in difficult times, working to keep the music alive.” George says, “I always knew I wanted this version of “Sex In Cars” with Dave to benefit some amazing non-profit,” George says. “As the pandemic hit and it became very clear that live music would not resume for many, many months, I immediately thought of Sweet Relief, not only because they help so many musicians, but also because they help everyone in the music industry. All of those people who work at venues booking shows, stage managing, bartending, lighting, mixing sound, and on and on. Sweet Relief is set up to help all of these workers during this crisis and also any other crisis that might come.”
