Revisiting a song originally featured on their album A Tuba To Cuba, Preservation Hall Jazz Band have re-released “Keep Your Head Up” as an anthem for the COVID-19 crisis.
The new version features rapper “Pell” and arrives alongside the launch of Pres Hall’s Legacy Emergency Relief Fund to “provide grants to the Hall’s 60-member Musical Collective to help with vital living expenses resulting from loss of work due to the Coronavirus.”
“We couldn’t be more grateful to have a dear friend as talented and kind as Pell lend his spirit and voice to our song,” said bandleader Ben Jaffe.
Added Pell, “This song is more important than ever in reminding us to enjoy every day, despite how much uncertainty and adversity this global tragedy has brought upon us. Stay safe, inside, and keep your head up high. Love.”
