Legendary singer/songwriter and influential folk icon Judy Collins has crafted an unrivaled reputation as one of the most gifted to ever take up the craft, and on May 7 she will release White Bird – Anthology Of Favorites, a hand-picked collection of “songs that remain dear to her heart so much so that she can still remember exactly where she was the first time she heard them,” per a news release.

One of those is “White Bird,” originally recorded in 1969 by the San Francisco group It’s A Beautiful Day, but recently recorded by Collins for this special release. It’s the song that gives her new anthology its name, and it was debuted on Friday:
