Sometimes covers put a new spin on old material. Sometimes the cover surprises. Most of the time, covers disappoint. Some covers make you want to blog about it …
If you aren’t familiar with David Bowie’s “Sound And Vision”, listen to the video below:
Beck “reimagines” this David Bowie staple and the YouTube description states the following:
“The Hello, Again performance started with an idea — Beck would reimagine David Bowie’s classic, “Sound and Vision.” But it became more than another cover. It became an experience that presented a fresh take on the possibilities of the once familiar, for both the audience and the performers.
In collaboration with Beck and a “band” of more than 160 diverse musicians, Director Chris Milk created a concert experience that was fully immersive for both the audience and the performers. By capturing the concert with 360-degree cameras and binaural microphones, online viewers will have the opportunity to experience the show from any and every seat in the house. Coming soon to http://www.hello-again.com.”

All I’m saying … if Beck ever tours with this, I’m the first one in line for tickets.
