Gold Lake Releases ‘Alone Again Or’ Cover for Amnesty International

Gold Lake, Amnesty International, Alone Again Or, Love,

Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization working to protect people across the planet wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. As longtime supporters, Brooklyn-based Gold Lake was looking for a way to raise awareness of the Nobel Prize-winning organization.

Together, they came up with the idea to record a cover of one of Gold Lake’s all-time favorite songs “Along Again Or” by Love. The hope was that the song and video would bring young people closer to Amnesty International and open their eyes to the problems that lesser-privileged individuals face around the world.

To record the song, Gold Lake got together with violinist Pico Alt (Sufjan Stevens), Kyle Resnick (The National), trumpet player and bassist Steve Mertens (Here We Go Magic, Moldy Peaches), and singer Carleigh Aikins (Bahamas).

Below, watch a live recording of Gold Lake and friends performing “Alone Again Or” for Amnesty International…
