In both trailers that have been released for Fallout 76, the soon-to-be latest installment in Bethesda’s Fallout series, a cover of the classic song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” (also known as “Country Roads, Take Me Home” or simply “Country Roads”) by John Denver is featured prominently.

This cover, which was recorded by an as of yet unidentified artist, captured the attention of fans almost immediately, with many calling for a full version to be released.

Well, it seems as though those fans are going to get their wish, as Bethesda took to Twitter to announce that a full version of Fallout 76‘s “Country Roads” cover will be available for purchase on iTunes starting July 4, 2018.

What’s more is that one-hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, a charity organization operating in all fifty U.S. states, as well as in over seventy countries, the goal of which is to provide a place to call home to those who do not currently have one.

In addition to helping a worthy cause and having a catchy new tune to add to their Fourth of July playlist, fans will likely also be curious to finally see exactly who is behind this cover (as Bethesda has kept tight-lipped on the matter.)

For those who would like to hear the full song so they can know what to expect from the full cover, the original John Denver version of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” can be found below.

The cover will be available for download on iTunes on July 4, 2018.

Fallout 76 is available for pre-order and will be released for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 14, 2018.
