Band Of Horses Share New Single Honoring Spotify Executive Chris Bevington
Band of Horses released “No One’s Gonna Love You (Stockholm Version),” which is a newly recorded version of their song first released in 2007. The updated single was recorded to honor late Spotify executive Chris Bevington.
As Billboard reports, Bevington was just 41-years-old when he was murdered when a terrorist crashed a truck into a crowd of people in Stockholm, Sweden on April 7, 2017. Band Of Horses frontman Ben Bridwell posted a message on Facebook about the updated track.
“When I was asked to help in celebrating the life of Chris Bevington by performing at his funeral, I was a bit apprehensive,” wrote Bridwell. “I was aware of the horrific tragedy that took his life, and my heart broke for his family left in the wake. I barely got through the songs without breaking down that day.”
Bridwell’s note revealed Bevington’s widow requested he perform “No One’s Gonna Love You” at her husband’s funeral service. Local musicians Jesper Nordenström and Ola Gustafsson accompanied Bridwell on the “Stockholm Version” of the song first issued on the Band Of Horses 2007 album Cease To Begin. The trio also arranged a cover of Nick Cave’s “Into My Arms.” Stream both tracks below:
