Nashville, Tenn. – Critically-acclaimed Roots band The Barefoot Movement are excited for the release of their new single “Killing Me Softly,” out today via Bonfire Music Group. It’s part of their Covers For A Cause, which was created to benefit the non-profit Soles4Souls. The objective is to help deliver clothing and shoes to underprivileged people throughout the United States and worldwide. All proceeds for this new song will go towards that effort. The new recording is available for download and/or streaming HERE.
“Killing Me Softly” is a song that dates all the way back to the early 1970s when it was released by Lori Lieberman. Over the years, it’s gained more and more notoriety after being covered by other artists like Roberta Flack and the Fugees featuring Lauryn Hill which both won Grammys. This new invigorated version sees a Roots take on the classic recording with lead vocals from Barefoot Movement co-founder Noah Wall.
This is the latest installment from Covers For A Cause. As part of the fundraiser, a new single will be unveiled every four weeks. The previous releases were their version of the Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun,” a special recording of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Lodi,” along with a beautiful Roots version of Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind,” and the most recent “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” In addition to proceeds from the single going to the charity, fans can also make direct donations to Soles4Souls, and learn more about the mission HERE.
