“The Man Who Sold the World” is a song written and performed by David Bowie. It is the title track of his third album, which was released in the US in November 1970 and in the UK in April 1971. The song has been covered by a number of other artists, notably by Lulu, who had a UK No. 3 hit with her version in 1974, and Nirvana.
In 2014, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, together with Raúl Fernández Miró (Refree), published her album, Granada, composed of 21 songs in which Nirvana songs are covered, such as ‘The man who sold the World.’
Noel Gallagher, it seems, was not content to let his brother Liam Gallagher get all the solo record glory and has announced his newest EP. He’s gone as far as to share the EP’s title track to whet your appetite. But it’s nothing like you’d expect.
The track is a space-tinged groove which has more in common with EDM than Britpop and will see Noel move into a new sphere. He opened up about some of his influences for the record “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep and ZZ Top!,” said the former Oasis leading man.
Biffy Clyro have ‘done’ a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’. Recorded for The Howard Stern Tribute to David Bowie, which was hosted by long-time Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti, the song originally featured on 1983’s ‘Let’s Dance’, reaching a high of Number Two on the UK singles charts.
La banda londinenca Artificial Pleasure, deutora de David Bowie, Roxy Music o Talking Heads, acaba de llançar el seu nou EP Wound Up Tight, un autèntic himne dels vuitanta amb reminiscències a la millor música disco i el primer house d’ambients més pop. Els seus directes són una autèntica experiència dance, on els seus nous hits, com Wound Up Tight o Better Than Nothing, sonen amb una contundència molt més gran del que hagin fet mai abans. Aritificial Pleasure és un dels grups més excitants de la nova fornada pop, i això és només el principi. Aquesta nit a Razzmatazz.
Warpaint‘s 2014 cover of “Ashes to Ashes” delicately layers harmonic California pop over the Bowie classic, while still emphasizing the dreary mood that surfaced when it first appeared on 1980’s Scary Monsters.
The British trio’s foray into an electro-funk-rock landscape—inspired by the sounds of Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, LCD Soundsystem, and both Davids (Bowie and Byrne)—has been, for the most part, organic. Artificial Pleasure is barely two year old with some singles , and most of their material is mixed and produced by the band’s members; the London-based group consists of Phil McDonnell (vocals and guitar), Dom Brennan (synths), and Lee Jordan (drums), all of whom were previously part of the band Night Engine.
With less than a month to go before the release of LCD Soundsystem’s comeback album, American Dream, the group has shared a new song. It’s titled “tonite” and was previously debuted live during LCD’s five-night stand at Brooklyn Steel back in April. American Dream officially lands in stores September 1st. “tonite” follows the tracks “call the police” and “american dream”. The reunited outfit (thanks, David Bowie!) recently expanded its US tour behind the LP.
