Up-and-coming London based trio Birthmarks have just shared a cover of ‘True Love Will Find You In The End’ by critically acclaimed visual artist and singer/songwriter, Daniel Johnston.
The cover was recorded live at The Bookhouse Studios in Lewisham, London, and frontman Daniel Cross had this to say about performing it.
“Daniel Johnston was one of my biggest influences as a songwriter and the sad news of his passing will leave a black cloud over this year. As with many people my age, I was first introduced to him through the medium of a t-shirt. Not a typical introduction, but he was not a typical artist. Johnston was innovative, beautiful, and sincere. ‘True Love Will Find You In The End’ is a masterpiece, the lyrics are a true journey that is optimistic, sober, comforting, and painfully honest.
We wanted to capture the song live to emulate Johnston’s recording technique and vulnerability, though I’d imagine with his instinctual playing he would have had it down a lot faster than us. His music has become a friend over the years and I’m forever grateful for the door that he left open to such a delicate world.”

The band’s debut full-length album, ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’, is out on March 27th 2020.
