Music Monday, May 16: Cover to Cover, Vol. 1
We’re lucky at Wear Your Voice for a lot of reasons. Our writers bring a wide mix of personalities and tastes, as well as a huge pool of knowledge and experience. This becomes especially apparent when we discuss music. One of those discussions inspired this week’s playlist.
This Music Monday offers a mix of killer covers. Covering another musician’s work can either go horribly wrong or really, really well. (We, of course, are only sharing the good ones!) In this playlist, modern R&B artist Trey Songz and all-female indie rockers Warpaint both cover music by the late David Bowie. These songs serve as a beautiful tribute to a deeply complicated individual who is not free from ethical critique but an utterly brilliant artist nonetheless.
