  • Devendra Banhart has released a cover of Ioanna Gika's song "Swan" on Banhart's YouTube and Gika's Bandcamp with all proceeds going to the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles. You can hear it here. "It is a pleasure to hear the song through Devendra’s distinct voice and vision," Gika says. "He is not only a prodigious artist, but one whom I have always appreciated for the way that he fosters community. Together, we have decided that we would like all proceeds from this cover to go to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles. Providing housing, healthcare, and assistance, the DWC is an important organization and one that is meaningful to us both."

  • About This Album

    This Helado Negro remix of Devendra Banhart's "Love Song," a track from Banhart's 2019 album, Ma, was released January 16, 2020, on Nonesuch Records.

    Helado Negro, aka Roberto Carlos Lange, says: "Music always makes me feel like you travel and hear, feel, and see where the sounds are from and take you. Devendra’s ‘Love Song’ does this. It haunts you with love. All of this album does this; it always makes you feel comforted and you’re never a stranger in the places he takes you. The remix I made is me as a witness to these sounds floating through this haunted feeling of love."

    “Helado Negro has made a rainbow out of frostbite, an orchid out of an Orc, a palace out of a pancake,” Banhart added. “In his reworked vision of ‘Love Song,’ it’s like he set the whole song free, gave it space to roam, way beyond where it once was, so nice and relaxing … Thank you dear hermano!”
