Listen to Nick Cave's stunning cover below.
Nick Cave has shared a moving cover of T. Rex's 'Cosmic Dancer', ahead of the release of the upcoming tribute album AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex.
The album, conceived and executive produced by Bill Curbishley and Ethan Silverman, is out on September 4 via BMG – and, as we previously reported, will featured a star-studded cast of musicians.
The release coincides with Marc's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, as well as the 50th anniversary of T. Rex's first album.
The album was made under the direction of Hal Willner, a music industry veteran who sadly died on April 7 from COVID-19.
“It is impossible to exaggerate the devastating effect Hal’s passing will have on the collective of people that circled around him," Nick Cave says of Willner's death, "esoteric artists he would corral together to participate in his rambling, hair-brained schemes, that were always a combination of genius, wonder and near-chaos.”
Take a look at the video for Nick Cave's cover of 'Cosmic Dance' below:
