This September, on the 20th anniversary of the original Sweet Relief compilation, the third installment will become available. The album features a song by Joseph Arthur, If I Needed You, on which he's backed by Jeff Ament and Richard Stuverud (thus making it a RNDM track, right?). Support the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and buy the album here or check out the song, care of Rolling Stone, below.
Singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur gets stark accompaniment from Pearl Jam guitarist Jeff Ament in this exclusive clip for "If I Needed You," shot live in the studio in black-and-white. Lifted from the forthcoming charity compilation Sweet Relief III: Pennies From Heaven (out September 3rd), the track's harmonica-laden approach evokes elements of Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline.
