The String Cheese Incident has shared a quarantine collab video in which the band covers the John Prine classic, “Pretty Good”, off his iconic 1971 self-titled debut album.
As we’ve been seeing more and more while musicians are hunkered down in their respective homes, the members of the band each recorded their respective parts to be patched together for the final product. In addition to the frame of the band members performing, the video leaves one space open at the top to cycle in various images of the famed singer-songwriter, who died of complications from COVID-19 earlier this month at the age of 73.
As The String Cheese Incident notes in the caption for the video on YouTube, “Aloha and thank you, John Prine. One of the biggest contributors to the songbook of the American people, not to mention all over the world. The biggest heart and an ability to turn a phrase like no one else. Thank you John!”
Watch The String Cheese Incident perform John Prine’s “Pretty Good” from their respective homes below:
