Published Jul 19, 2016David Bowie delivered his swansong with Blackstar before he passed away earlier this year, and now the title track from his final record has been given a makeover from an adoring fan.
Car Seat Headrest, the project of singer-songwriter Will Toledo, has been playing the track live at recent shows, and now a version of the cover has surfaced online. Recorded during a radio appearance at Minneapolis' the Current, Toledo and his band take the tune in a more straightforward indie rock direction, though it still retains an air of haunted gloominess.
Car Seat Headrest's Teens of Denial is out now (sans that Cars sample) via Matador. Hear Toledo and his backing band's cover of "Blackstar" below.
