Ren also recently recorded a cover of Vashti Bunyan’s 'The Train Song' with Karen Elson.
Ren and Karen, both from the north west of England and fans of each other’s music, met via a mutual friend in New York and decided to record this classic track for which they shot a video in Nashville. Since then Ren has been asked to join The Citizens band (which on a rotating basis consists of Sarah Sophie Flicker, Zooey Deschanel, Karen Elson, Angela McCluskey, Rain Phoenix, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Melissa Auf der Maur amongst others) for a 5 night residency in NY, late October.
