A cover of Depeche Mode, The Kills reimagining T. Rex and more are available at Amazon Music
St. Vincent and Jehnny Beth of Savages put their flair on Nine Inch Nails’ “Piggy” and “Closer” respectively. Eyelids took on Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” off 1990’s Violator, while Real Estate covered “What a Fool Believes” by the Doobie Brothers.
And while T. Rex was honored with a tribute album of covers this year, The Kills will be covering their iconic track, “Cosmic Dancer.” To honor the late Whitney Houston, Brandy will be covering one of the singer’s tracks, which will release in 2021.
In other Amazon Music news, the service re-released The Birth of Biggie on the Notorious B.I.G., an audio doc that pays tribute to the late Brooklyn rapper’s debut album, Ready to Die.
