Flock of Dimes’ Jenn Wasner on “Ever New”:
It was an honor to work with Justin (and many other talented folks!) on this re-imagining of “Ever New" for
Transgressive’s Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined. I’ll never forget the first time I heard Glenn’s version of
this song—it instantly felt deeply familiar, strikingly beautiful, simple and pure. Over the years I have
returned to it repeatedly in moments when I need to be soothed, and it always acts as an anchor amidst
life’s uncertainties. “Ever New" is a timeless classic, and it’s an honor to have played a small part in ensuring
its continued appreciation by many generations to come.
