Daily Discovery: Rising Appalachia – I Need a Forest Fire

Rising Appalachia, featuring Branden J. Lewis of Preservation Hall on trumpet, has released a new cover of James Blake and Bon Iver’s “I Need A Forest Fire.”

Sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith transform the song with lush harmonies, fingerpicked guitars, and an acoustic arrangement that brings an organic feel to Blake’s original.

Their rendition reflects themes of rebirth and cleansing, symbolised by the forest fire metaphor. A portion of the song’s revenue will support wildfire prevention and restoration efforts.
