Aligning with what would have been David Bowie’s 74th birthday, a number of artists have announced their involvement on Modern Love, a brand new tribute LP.
Psych-funk trio (and recent Relix cover stars) Khruangbin are among the featured acts, as are Jeff Parker, We Are KING, Meshell Ndegeocello, Helado Negro, Khruangbin, Matthew Tavares, L’Rain, Nia Andrews and more.
“Modern Love seeks to champion Bowie’s lesser known connection to soul, R&B, jazz, funk, and gospel,” reads a statement from organizers. “The prominent jazz influences throughout Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, were a key inspiration for curating this collection of reimagined Bowie songs with these artists. It’s a really special, well-curated, and thoughtful compilation.”
Modern Love will be released on May 28.
