Tyler the Creator, Nick Cave, "Weird Al" Yankovic Share "Daisy Bell" Covers from Mark Ryden Project
Published May 11, 2014As recently reported, a pile of A-class musicians got together for The Gay Nineties Old Tyme Music: Daisy Bell, an album commissioned by famed visual artist Mark Ryden for his L.A. art show "The Gay 90s." For the project, each musician, including Nick Cave, Tyler, the Creator, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Katy Perry, delivered his or her own interpretation of the 1892 composition called "Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)." Now we can watch those reinterpretations online.
Down below, you can hear the covers and watch their accompanying visuals, with Tyler, the Creator, Nick Cave, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Katy Perry, Mark Mothersbaugh, Kirk Hammett and Danny Elfman all sharing their contributions.
The album has been pressed to vinyl, with only 999 copies in existence. Half of those were sold at the opening of Ryden's show on May 3, while the other half was available at the artist's website on May 13. The records retailed for $99.99 and served as a benefit for the Little Kids Rock nonprofit.
