Sarah Silverman, Rachel Bloom, Nada Surf and Ted Leo contributed to the 31-track album.
It's fitting that late Fountains of Wayne singer Adam Schlesinger's friends and musical colleagues are remembering the prolific, wildly talented songwriter with a tribute album benefitting COVID-19 relief. The 31-track Saving for a Custom Van, out today on Father/Daughter Records & Wax Nine and available exclusively on Bandcamp, features Schlesinger's collaborators, tour mates, friends and fans offering up their versions of songs from throughout the Fountains of Wayne singer/songwriter's expansive career.
Schlesinger, who died on April 1 at age 52 due to complications from COVID-19, is honored by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator/executive producer and star Rachel Bloom, who reworks FoW's most beloved song, "Stacy's Mom" into a jazzy cabaret track. The album also features comedian Sarah Silverman teaming with Ben Lee for a folky take on "Way Back Into Love" from the 2007 movie Music and Lyrics.
