In 2020, Goo Goo Dolls released the festive album ‘It’s Christmas All Over’, which was extended last year with two bonus tracks.
That same year, Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers covered the band’s biggest hit, “Iris”. Ahead of the November 2020 presidential election, Bridgers tweeted: “If Trump loses, I will cover Iris from The Goo Goo Dolls.”
When Joe Biden was confirmed as the next President of the United States, the musician kept her word and invited Rogers to help her. They released the cover as a download for 24 hours, with proceeds going to Democrat Stacey Abrams’ voting rights organization, Fair Fight.
Last month, the cover was republished to raise money for the Brigid Alliance charity, which advocates abortion rights. Bridgers and Rogers then confirmed that a further 18,000 people had downloaded the song following its re-release, raising over £65,000.
“This is amazing, thank you so much for your support,” said the Brigid Alliance. “All the money raised on this road will go to support people who have been forced to travel long distances to get abortion care, which has skyrocketed since the Supreme Court’s ruling in June.”
