Yesterday marked the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic and folk/punk act RMS Olympic is offering a free download/stream of his cover of “Nearer, My God To Thee” as tribute to the famous wreck. He writes
According to many witnesses, “Nearer, My God, To Thee” was the last song played by the band as the RMS Titanic slowly disappeared into the Atlantic. On the 100-year anniversary of this famous tragedy, I’d like to pay tribute to my namesake’s sister ship with my version of this tragic, yet hopeful hymn. Please download it for free and remember the first and last voyage of the Ship of Dreams.
Stream and download it for free here.
RMS Olympic last released a self-titled, free EP which you can download via bandcamp.
