Tribute album update

Previously, we announced The Innocence Mission tribute album benefiting the Polaris Project would be released in the spring of 2009. This news was provided by one of the contributing bands, the Winterpills. They were to provide their version of "Keeping Awake", however the album was never released and it's appearing as though it may never be.

Despite the lack of news regarding the as-of-yet released album, Trespassers William has graciously posted a streaming version of their cover, "Tomorrow On The Runway". You can hear the track at their myspace page.

"Shadows" and royalties?

Back in 1986, The Innocence Mission released their debut EP Tending the Rose Garden. The track "Shadows" found its way to Amy Grant and was subsequently recorded on her highly successful album Lead Me On.

After all these years, I'm sure many of us had forgotten all about this song, but in 2008 Amy Grant toured and once again performed the song. So do you think Karen and Don are still getting their performance royalties? One can only hope.
