Cover Your Ass Vol. 1 is another benefit for Planned Parenthood and is due out May 26 via Lionfish Music. Now Speedy Ortiz‘s cover of TV on the Radio‘s “Young Liars” has been shared. It was recorded in 2015 and you can listen to it below via Consequence of Sound.

The band issued the following statement to Consequence of Sound: “‘Young Liars’ is poetic and lovely, but also rife with the American shame and sneering political skepticism that marked the best of W. Bush-era post-punk. So the song has a renewed resonance considering the fearful dystopian anticipation our current administration’s ‘marked down freedom’ has generated in so many of us.”

Cover Your Ass Vol. 1 also features covers by Cass McCombs (Pointer Sisters), Deerhoof (Public Enemy), Hinds (Dead Ghosts), TEEN (David Bowie), The Lemon Twigs (Dido), Luke Temple (Scott Walker), Porches (Big Star), and more. The full tracklist is below and above is the cover art.

There’s also the 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood project, which is a new 7-inch box set, and an acoustic guitar that’s been signed by over 100 artists for Planned Parenthood.
