NAS Remakes Slick Rick's "Hey Young World" for LEVI'S Pioneer Sessions
While much has changed about music over the past 50 years (artists, genres, popularity, formats, distribution, etc.), one thing remains true: The song is everything. We’re excited to welcome you to the Levi’s® Pioneer Sessions 2010 Revival Recordings. We asked a dozen of our favorite pioneering artists spanning multiple genres to record a song. Further sweetening the deal – each song re-crafted by this amazing roster, including the likes of Nas, The Swell Season, Dirty Projectors and more, is a song that mattered to them in some special way. You’ll find two new songs per week, available as free downloads, over the course of the following six weeks. Each song is paired with exclusive photos, behind-the-scenes video and additional content that celebrates the enduring importance of the song and the influence it has across generations.
Nas' reinterpretation of Slick Rick's classic, "Hey Young World", is the first song from this project. You can download the song for free HERE
