Feist: The Stranger (Gord Downie Tribute)
on 19 October 2017
Hauntingly beautiful, Feist's cover of "The Stranger was her tribute to fellow Canadian and Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie, who died this week from brain cancer. The track was drawn from Downie's 2016 solo album Secret Path. Feist explains that "I send out this song with love, respect and gratitude in honor of Gord's generosity of spirit. I admired so much his honest way of communicating what he saw and the courage and conviction he searched with."
