Hear Florence and the Machine, Kings of Leon + More Cover Eagles of Death Metal for Charity
Following the attack at their Nov. 13 concert in Paris that left 89 people dead, Eagles of Death Metal launched a charity campaign dubbed “Play It Forward,” calling fellow artists to cover the band’s Zipper Down track “I Love You All the Time” and donate all of the proceeds. We’ve already heard covers by My Morning Jacket and Dean Ween, and now there are even more from Florence and the Machine and Kings of Leon.
You can listen to takes by Florence and the Machine and the Maccabees, Jimmy Eat World, Kings of Leon, Imagine Dragons, Mini Mansions and Alain Johannes at the bottom of the page. Savages also played the song live in Paris, which can be seen right here.
Eagles of Death Metal will donate all of their publishing revenue from the covers to Josh Homme’s charity the Sweet Stuff Foundation, which is taking donations for Paris victims’ families through the end of the year. The artists covering the song are encouraged to donate to a charity of their choice.
Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron also covered "I Love You All the Time," which will appear on a forthcoming vinyl release backed with Pearl Jam’s live cover of Eagles of Death Metal's “I Want You So Hard.”
