We’re so pleased to share a powerful new song from Michael Stipe & Big Red Machine, out now on 37d03d.com. The collaboration came about when Aaron Dessner of The National shared a folder of new Big Red Machine music with Michael last year. “No Time for Love Like Now” was written last fall but when the reality of the COVID pandemic and social distancing and self-isolation descended, the words felt like they were written about this time. The song features orchestration by Bryce Dessner. Justin Vernon, Brad Cook, JT Bates, Thomas Barlett, Clarice Jensen, and Yuki Numata Resnick also perform on the track. Video directed by Michael Brown.
Michael & Big Red Machine have also designed a “No Time For Love Like Now” t-shirt and tote. All proceeds from the sales will go to the Equal Justice Initiative and COVID-19 Protest Relief Fund.
