For the performance, Sharon Van Etten will join the band on bass and backing vocals.
Fountains of Wayne co-founder, bassist and songwriter Adam Schlesinger died earlier this month as a result of complications after contracting COVID-19.
“Brian, Jody and I are honored to be part of the Jersey 4 Jersey benefit, and grateful that Sharon was able to perform with us,” lead singer Chris Collingwood said in a statement.
“Adam would have been proud that Fountains were helping to raise money for fellow New Jerseyans.”
Van Etten echoed Collingwood’s sentiments, saying, “As a New Jersey native, it means so much to me to participate in the NJPRF charitable event that gives back to this community.”
“Adam was an incredible songwriter and I am truly humbled to join Fountains of Wayne in his honor.”
Jersey 4 Jersey will raise money for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund. The event begins at midnight BST on Thursday April 23, via Apple Music and AppleTV apps.
