John Prine’s last recorded song, “I Remember Everything,” will be available on limited-edition, 7-inch blue vinyl pressed by Third Man Records early next year. Pre-order HERE. The release includes two versions of the song—the original recording and a new exclusive rendition featuring a special strings arrangement. Proceeds from the 7-inch will benefit The Recording Academy’s MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
“I Remember Everything” debuted earlier this year at #1 on Billboard’s Rock Digital Song Sales chart making it the highest-charting single of Prine’s career as a performer. Written by Prine and his longtime collaborator Pat McLaughlin, the song was recorded last year in Prine’s living room with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and engineer Gena Johnson. Watch the recording HERE.
Since its release, the track has garnered widespread attention and been featured in the season 5 premiere of NBC’s “This Is Us” as well as the 2020 Democratic National Convention as a tribute to those who have been lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In continued celebration of Prine’s career, PBS’ “Austin City Limits” kicked-off Season 46 with “The Very Best of John Prine” earlier this month. The hour-long episode featured favorite performances from across Prine’s eight visits to the venerable program as well as never-before-seen footage. Watch the episode HERE. Prine was also recently honored as part of the Recording Academy’s “Great Performances: GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends®” ceremony in celebration of the Lifetime Achievement Award he received this past January at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
Moreover, due to popular demand, “Picture Show: A Tribute Celebrating John Prine,” re-aired with additional footage on October 10 in celebration of Prine’s 74th birthday. Originally viewed over 500,000 times, the tribute has raised over $400,000 for NAMI, Alive, Make the Road New York and MusiCares.
Already a two-time winner in the category, Prine is once again nominated for “Artist of the Year” at the 2020 Americana Honors & Awards.
