Swamp Dogg feat. Justin Vernon: I’ll Pretend

With captivating blues flourishes and his own unique twist to auto-tuned soul vocals, Swamp Dogg (aka Jerry Williams Jr) makes nothing short of art in his new collaborative track with Justin Vernon, “I’ll Pretend.” With a narrative about loneliness and separation, coupled with a haunting music video, the track highlight’s the 75-year-old’s wisdom and emotional awareness. Simply put: it’s a genre-defiant number from a legend.
