Phoebe Bridgers, Beck and more are set to take part in a special tribute to Daniel Johnston on the anniversary of his death.

The cult musician died one year ago today (September 11) from a heart attack. He was 58 years old.

Bridgers and Beck will be joined by Jeff Tweedy, Maya Hawke and Jesse Harris, Waxahatchee, Devendra Banhart, The Lemon Twigs, Kevin Morby, Adam Green and more on the livestream titled Honey I Sure Miss You. Each artist will perform their favourite song by Johnston in pre-recorded footage.

The tribute will air on Johnston’s YouTube page and on the website of iconic New York recording studio Electric Lady tonight at 9pm ET (2am BST). It will also feature a never-before-seen home movie of Johnston shared by his family.

In a statement, Lee Foster, the managing partner of Electric Lady, said: “I’m just a huge fan of Daniel Johnston’s drawings and music and recognise how beloved he is, especially within the music community.

“If you’re a fan, you’re usually a fanatic, and when I started reaching out to musician and industry friends for video submissions, the answer was almost always an all-caps ‘YES.’ People want to celebrate him.”

Following Johnston’s death in 2019, a number of musicians began sharing covers of songs from across his back catalogue. Wilco were among them, performing a version of Johnston’s ‘True Love Will Find You In The End’ at a gig in Berlin.
