London’s indie band NIGHT FLOWERS recorded an intimate version of THE PRETENDERS‘ 1983 Christmas pearl ‘2000 MILES‘ written by frontwoman Chrissie Hynde in memory of the band’s guitarist James Honeyman-Scott, who died of cocaine-induced heart failure the year before. Night Flowers, at their turn, dedicate the song to a personal friend and vivid fan of theirs who passed away recently. All benefits will go to CALM = Campaign Against Living Miserably. An award-winning charity offering support to prevent male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 years in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.
Here’s the sad beauty…
