MOBY released new album Reprise a few days ago. It features
orchestral and acoustic arrangements of songs from the past,
with the Budapest Art Orchestra, a string quartet, along with
several guest artists.
The record also includes a notable cover of
David Bowie‘s 24 Karat classic ‘Heroes.’
Moby: “‘Heroes’ was one of the first records (well, cassettes) I ever
bought, and I still think it’s the most beautiful song ever written.”
With the wonderful and soulful voice of Mindy Jones, Moby strips
the song and the pace down, let it float like a cloud in the sky, with
a mellow piano upfront and a gripping, symphonic finale. A vocal
and musical beauty!
I know, nobody can match Bowie‘s masterstroke
performance of ‘Heroes’ but this interpretation
gives me goosebumps.
