I know we bitch a lot on this site about the seemingly never-ending stream of David Bowie covers…either that or we ignore them like the latest Cat Power cover. However, the newest cover will be featured on the album Heroes being released on November 24 by the charity War Child. So I don’t even have the urge to bitch about it since it is for a good cause. The concept of the album is that music legends such as David Bowie, Paul McCartney, and The Clash will choose younger artists to cover one of their signature songs. No word yet as to what Bowie song will be included, but one of the songs will be Joy Division’s “Transmission” covered by Hot Chip. That makes me squee with delight – I love that song! I can’t wait to find out what the Bowie song will be and who he will choose to cover it.
