Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Pay Tribute to Heath Ledger, John Lennon With New Single

Posted on by Brandy

Truth: This is not what I expected to hear when I hit ‘play’ on the latest single from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Frontman Alex Ebert told Rolling Stone of “Life Is Hard”:


I started writing something on the piano when I was taking a break from mixing the album, and then I remembered this poem that I had found in my files. Scrawled above the poem it said “to John and Heath,” and I was referring to John Lennon and Heath Ledger. Heath was going to put out our first album and we became close, we had all of these plans, and then he died. We had talked the day before he died. I don’t know when I had written the poem but it had been a few years earlier. It must’ve been right after I had talked to this psychic, who told me that a man named Heath said that John says hello. So I was like “John who?” And then I thought maybe it was John Lennon
