As part of the “Let Go” 15th anniversary we’re releasing “Standing at the Gates: The Songs of Nada Surf’s Let Go,” an album benefitting the ACLU and The Pablove Foundation (which helps children with cancer). The album features covers by an incredible group of artists including Ron Gallo, Aimee Mann, Manchester Orchestra, Ed Harcourt, Rogue Wave and many more. A full track listing is below.


To ring in the announcement, the band has shared Ron Gallo’s cover of the song Happy Kid. Of his version, he says, “I first heard Nada Surf on a mix CD a friend made me in high school that was pretty life-changing. It was 20+ songs from bands I had never heard of before. It opened the door to “underground” or “indie” music for me, and also the door to actually good songs being written by weirdos in the present day, which I didn’t know existed from listening to mostly south jersey pop-punk and hardcore music. I’m pretty sure it was the song “Paper Boats” from Let Go. I really sucked at making music back then so it’s cool to have this resurface many years later and be able to be apart of the compilation.”


The digital release is February 2nd, and the CD will be available March 2nd. Waiting for the vinyl delivery date…
