New sonic impulses

29 April 2020

Living legend NICK CAVE has recorded a song by seventies glam icons T.REX.
The Australian singer/songwriter star picked ‘COSMIC DANCER‘ to feature on
a tribute album dedicated to the band’s brilliant mastermind and charismatic
leader MARC BOLAN. His version is vintage Cave, a heartfelt crooning ballad,
a moony reverie with goosebumps piano and warm clarinet fragments.

The new record, entitled ‘ANGELHEADED HIPSTER’ is planned for a
4 September release, with other contributing artists such as Elton John,
U2, Joan Jett
and Marc Almond. .

The reimagined selection of T.Rex classics was headed up by producer
Hall Willner, who passed away from coronavirus earlier this month,
only 64. Rest in peace.

Here’s Nick Cave‘s amazing cover…
