Tribute albums are always tough to achieve. The best way to go about them is to have a group of artists over one act. Luckily for fans of David Bowie, that’s what’s happening with Modern Love: A David Bowie Tribute Album due in May. Today a new single by Helado Negro drops, a cover of the Bowie classic “Sound and Vision” that will stir you down to your insides.
The cover has all of the markings that Negro infuses into his work. The urban vibes mixed with well arranged notes are here. The cover takes the original and honors it while also re-imagining it in a way as well. The build includes the original notes reworked in a modern way. With minimal vocals the music is key here and Helado Negro doesn’t disappoint with his rhythmic style.
The video can be viewed above. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites. Modern Love: A David Bowie Tribute Album can be preordered from BBE Music ahead of its May 28 release soon. The song can be purchased from BBE Music.
