Stereogum Premieres Mark Kozelek's "I Know", A Contribution to the You Be My Heart Benefit Compilation
"Today we premiere [Mark] Kozelek’s contribution, a typically dour, heartfelt, and incisive acoustic rambler called 'I Know'." —Chris DeVille - Stereogum
Stereogum premieres Mark Kozelek’s single, “I Know”, which is featured on the You Be My Heart compilation, due out December 9, benefiting the nonprofit organization 826 National whose mission is dedicated to offering a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills.
“Mark has written a lot of songs that touch on the complex nature of relationships, so I was really excited to have him interpret ‘I Know’, explains Devon Reed of the beautifully, honest song. “I think the combination of Mark’s persona and the lyrics really match well.”
The San Francisco filmmaker and songwriter, Reed, who volunteers with 826 National initiated, financed, and wrote all the songs which were presented to a variety of bands to select the ones that called to them and in turn give their own unique twist. The result is a compilation featuring a who’s who in the indie rock scene with artists such as Bowerbirds, The Cloud Room, Maps & Atlases, Horse Feathers, Marissa Nadler and Field Report all participating to support the nonprofit's aim.
