Vanguard Records is set to release the third installment of Sweet Relief, a compilation series that aims to provide assistance to musicians who suffer from illness and disability. On this latest compilation, Sweet Relief III: Pennies From Heaven, an array of artists including Ben Harper and Ron Sexsmith chose to record songs that conveyed themes of assistance and support. One such track is from Eleni Mandell performing “I’ll Be Home.”
“The song is a from one if my favorite records, Nilsson Sings Newman,” says Mandell. “Randy Newman is definitely one of my favorite songwriters, and Nilsson’s versions of his songs are amazing. I thought ‘I’ll Be Home’ fit perfectly with the theme of the record.”
Watch the video for Mandell’s recording of “I’ll Be Home,” recorded in Sweet Relief’s producers Sheldon Gomberg’s Carriage House Studios in Los Angeles, in the player below. Sweet Relief III: Pennies From Heaven is set for release on Sept. 3 via Vanguard Records.
