July 23 street date. In 2020, 4AD turned 40. Never one to be on time for a party, the label is commemorating that landmark this year with the release of "Bills & Aches & Blues". The compilation features 18 of its current artists covering a song of their choosing from 4AD's past: a creative experiment rooted in the spirit of collaboration and a snapshot of 4AD, 41 years after its inception. "Bills & Aches & Blues" will be released with standard vinyl and CD editions following on 23 July and a deluxe vinyl boxset later this year. The first 12 months' profits from "Bills & Aches & Blues" will be donated to The Harmony Project, a Los Angeles-based after-school programme for children from communities and schools that lack equitable access to studying the arts or music. "Bills & Aches & Blues" is named, arguably (as Elizabeth Fraser never published the lyrics) after the opening line of Cocteau Twins' ‘Cherry-Coloured Funk’.
