Dirty Projectors have recorded a song called “While You’re Here”, which is a tribute to their friend Gerard Smith, former TV On The Radio bassist. Smith sadly lost a battle with lung cancer last year. It’s a lovely song, and I don’t think anything else needs to be said but this following tweet for Dave Longstreth
Hey, here’s a song I wrote on the day of Gerard Smith’s wake in BK 2 summers ago. This song is for him. Miss u Gerry!
