From KCRW DJ Liza Richardson:

Brett Dennen recorded an exclusive track for the season finale of Parenthood which airs tonight on NBC. It’s a cover of a Stephen Foster song, “Hard Times Come Again No More”. I’m the music supervisor for the show, and I thought it would be perfect for the KCRW Music Blog since we love Brett so much and he was just here at the station last week for a live set on Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Plus, his new album just came out. This cover is not on it and is not available anywhere else.

Stream Brett Dennen’s “Hard Times Come Again No More”

Hopefully it will be on iTunes soon, but you can hear it here for the first time! And you can watch it tonight 😉

Editor’s Note: Liza’s has featured a lot of great artists on Parenthood – from Lykke Li to The Walkmen and Junip. People definitely notice the music, so much so that after we posted a blog about the release of the Parenthood soundtrack last October, we got a few folks commenting, trying to find out who was behind a key scene – it was Corinne Bailey Rae.
