A myriad of genres and artists contribute to the music former Broken Bells artist James Mercer and his new group The Shins produce. Now, Mercer is looking back into his past for some inspiration for the indie rock band's cover of Squeeze's "Goodbye Girl," presented exclusively by Levi's Pioneer Sessions.
"I picked the Squeeze song because there's something about it that I really connected with. It sounds like something that I really wish I written," Mercer says. "It's just a really cool song. It's a cool set of harmonies and vocal melodies," the singer adds.
Other artists scheduled to contribute music to Levi's Pioneer Sessions include Jason Mraz, Raphael Saadiq and John Legend.
