SPIZZ CELEBRATES BOWIE!
SPIZZ ENERGI celebrate the majesty of DAVID BOWIE on their new single out today!
Rather than channelling glam Bowie, Berlin Bowie or 80s funk Bowie, they’ve chosen to revisit the later years with a cover of ‘Valentine’s Day’ from his 2013 album The Next Day.
Mixed by longtime Bowie confidante and producer Tony Visconti, the release both commemorates the Starman’s passing as well as getting in early for St Valentine’s day, less than a month away.
“I’ve reached the difficult age where family and friends find it impossible to choose a birthday present for me,” says frontman Spizz about the decision to cover the track . “Fed up with the nagging I took the initiative and bought tickets to see David Bowie’s acclaimed play Lazarus at the giant pop up theatre in Kings Cross London (on my birthday – 11 Jan). After various drop outs and declines, SpizzEnergi guitarist Luca Comencini and I saw the show and were both knocked out by ‘Valentine’s Day’ which featured prominently in the performance. We, there and then, decided to include the song in our live-set as the band were booked for the upcoming BowieCon later that year”.
‘Valentine’s Day’ is available to stream/download here.
