June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month. -- Orville Peck gets to cover Lady Gaga here. It’s fitting that Peck, a gay country artist, gets to put his own spin on one of the great Pride anthems of the last decade. "I am so honored and excited to be a part of the iconic legacy of this song and album. Thank you @ladygaga for askin me and Happy Pride y'all !!" the Canadian masked country musician tweeted.

Let Down
by Radiohead
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Lead singer Thom Yorke: "I was pissed in a club, and I suddenly had the funniest thought I'd had for ages - what if all the people who were drinking were hanging from the bottles... if the bottles were hung from the ceiling with string, and the floor caved in, and the only thing that kept everyone up was the bottles? It's also about an enormous fear of being trapped." -- Attend another festival, Lollapalooza in Chicago in 2016, to see Radiohead perform a live version of "Let Down": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9Xgj8RRgmE (Please note that Jonny Greenwood is playing his guitar in a different time signature than his colleagues.)
