On June 21, a compilation paying tribute to the musical contributions of the late Harry Nilsson will be released. This Is The Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 2) (pre-order here)is the sequel to the original tribute album released in 2014, and comes at a pretty relevant time.

Not only was Harry Nilsson an important songwriter, but his music has undergone a bit of a renaissance lately thanks in large part to the Netflix series Russian Doll, which features “Gotta Get Up” heavily in its first season.

That song isn’t represented on this new compilation album — it was covered by Annie Nilsson in the first edition — but nonetheless, folks are interested in his music right now.

Here’s Cheap Trick’s rendition of “Ambush,” taken from the new album:
