Out July 16, How Many More Times is a six-song collection of reimagined Esther Rose songs from her 2021 album, How Many Times. Collaborators include Shamir, Anjimile, Stef Chura, Tasha, Twain, and a remix by NM-based DJ, Field Supervisor.
Today you can hear Shamir's cover of "Songs Remain" on all streaming services and on YouTube here. "Songs Remain is a song I immediately resonated with upon first listen," explains Shamir. "I'm unfortunately one of those people who associate love with grief. Constantly reminding myself that emotions and connections are fleeting, so I make note of the concrete things. The connection I had with this song allowed me to record it relatively fast. I wanted to keep the song simple like the original, but add a little Shamir weirdness to it with some spacey guitar."

Adam Schlesinger was a prodigious and prolific songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He died on April 1, 2020 at the age of 52 as the result of complications from COVID-19.
Not only was Schlesinger in multiple beloved bands—including the power-pop-leaning Fountains of Wayne and sophisticated electro-pop act Ivy—but he also collaborated on songs for movie soundtracks and the TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
In June 2020, a wide array of artists touched by Schlesinger's life paid tribute to the many musical projects of which he was a part via a Bandcamp-exclusive benefit compilation, Saving for a Custom Van. The 31-song collection features collaborators, tourmates, friends, and fans putting their own spin on songs spanning his entire career.
Now, for the first and only time, Saving for a Custom Van will be available on vinyl, available exclusively from the Vinyl Me, Please. The 3xLP collection is pressed on pink vinyl and includes an 8 page booklet with photos and personal essays from Ben Lee, Jody Porter, Sarah Silverman, Rachel Bloom, and more. Preorder the LP here. Vinyl will begin shipping in late September 2021.
Saving for a Custom Van proceeds will be donated to MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund, which is dedicated to helping music industry and community members affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
