Trailer for the album…
Gahan: “When I listen to other people’s voices and songs, more
importantly, the way they sing them and interpret the words, I feel
at home. I identify with it. It comforts me more than anything else.
There’s not one performer on the record who I haven’t been moved
by. I know we made something special, and I hope other people feel
that and it takes them on a little kind of trip, especially people who
love music and have for years.””
We already heard his Cat Power cover and here Dave Gahan turns into a soul-stirring crooner with his take of THE DARK END OF THE STREET. A sensitive 1966 ballad written
by a duo called Chips Moman and Dan Penn and covered, over the years, by several big stars such as Aretha Franklin, Dolly Parton, Elvis Costello and Frank Black.
And now it’s Gahan‘s turn…
Aretha Franklin‘s version…
