So it's a compilation record of artists choosing songs of Sonic Youth. There's going to be one exclusive song of ours that we'll record, so that's something we have to record.

it's their songs, not covers

and you know, Starbucks' Hear music label is an INDEPENDENT label, it's not under control from Universal, EMI, Warner or Sony BMG, i don't get the sell-out label anyways, it's a rather pompous tag to label someone like Sonic Youth whose credentials are quite intact
