Soccer Mommy has unveiled a new project she’s been working on while on lockdown, the Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series.

Each release in the series, arriving every two weeks, will see the musician and a friend – including MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, Beabadoobee and Beach Bunny – covering one another’s songs. The first release, out now, sees Soccer Mommy cover Jay Som’s ‘I Think You’re Alright’, while she takes on her song ‘Lucy’.

“I’m super excited to kick things off with this Jay Som collab because [she] really made such an awesome new version of ‘Lucy'”, says Soccer Mommy. “I have also always loved her song ‘I Think You’re Alright’, so it was great to get a chance to cover it. It has such a sweet tenderness to it that just makes you feel warm inside”.

Jay Som adds: “I had an extremely fun time recording the ‘Lucy’ cover. [Soccer Mommy] has such a special way of entwining catchy melodies and sometimes dark chord progressions. I feel very lucky to be a part of this comp”.

All net profits from the sale of the singles on Bandcamp will be donated to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund, which is working to prevent the spread of the virus in vulnerable communities. There is also an anonymous donor who will match all money raised up to $5000.
