Rosie Thomas Covers Björk’s “All Is Full of Love”

The cover features vocals by Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, Iron & Wine, Denison Witmer, and other indie luminaries.

Last November, I alerted you to Rosie Thomas’ Lullabies for Parents, a new project intended to encourage, inspire, and comfort parents. But somehow, I completely missed that one of Thomas’ Lullabies was a cover of Björk’s haunting single “All Is Full of Love,” from 1997’s Homogenic.

Thomas’ cover would be remarkable enough with just her hushed voice, simple-yet-lush production, and nothing else. But she’s also joined by a veritable “who’s who” of indie artists lending their voices to the song’s choral backdrop, including Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, Iron & Wine, Audrey Assad, Denison Witmer, Leigh Nash, Beau Jennings, and more.

“All Is Full of Love” appears on Lullabies For Parents, Volume One, which was released this past April. Volume Two, which includes collaborations with Iron & Wine, William Fitzsimmons, and Denison Witmer, will be released this coming March.
