Phoebe Bridgers’ Band And Irish Duo Team Up For Charity
Could we love her any more?
Phoebe Bridgers may not be with Paul Mescal anymore, but it looks like she still has a grá for Ireland.
The singer announced that she and her band, boygenius would be coming together with Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds to record a song for charity.
The five-piece are also paying tribute to Sinéad O’Connor with the single.
They united to record a cover of traditional song, The Parting Glass. A tune that Sinéad herself recorded in 2002.
They will donate all net proceeds from the track to the Aisling Project, an after-school project working with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area in Dublin, Ireland, chosen by the Sinéad O’Connor Estate.
Aisling Project is an after-school intervention program working in five different centres across the whole of Dublin’s suburb of Ballymun, serving over 150 children and young people from the age of 7 to 18+ years.
Each child and young person who attends Aisling Project receives a hot, nutritious dinner and is supported and helped to complete their homework.
Aisling Project provides a wide range of ever-expanding activities all in a welcoming, safe, caring and fun-filled environment.
“The Parting Glass with boygenius and Ye Vagabonds is out now. For Sinéad, and my dad,” Phoebe wrote on social media.

Phoebe’s father passed away in January of this year.
“We are absolutely thrilled that boygenius have chosen to give proceeds from the release to Aisling Project,” says Project Leader Mícheál Clear.
“It’s an absolute privilege to be associated with the stunningly beautiful homage to Sinéad O’Connor and we can’t possibly thank boygenius enough.”
