Black BOWIE Music Matters – Coming Soon… Tribute Album ‘MODERN LOVE’

11 January 2021

Album: MODERN LOVE – David Bowie tribute LP
Label: Barely Breaking Even (UK)
Out: 28 May 2021

Label executive (and DJ) Drew McFadden about the project: “I felt that the connection between Bowie and R&B, jazz, funk, gospel and all things soulful, had never really been
explored before — at least not so much in covers, which tend to lean more towards rock and pop. Certainly, there’s been plenty of Bowie covers over the years, but none that have really tapped into what seems to have been a big part of his core musical style and direction.”

Artists: Khruangbin, Helado Negro, Jeff Parker, L’Rain, Bullion,
Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Meshell Ndegeocello
, and more.

First taster is by famous, female Minneapolis
twin sister R & B duo We Are KING (formerly King).
They picked Bowie‘s massive hit Space Oddity to cover.

Their version is floating in a the-stars-are-out-tonight
galaxy. Like a starry-eyed dream in motion. A beauty…
