SUGIZO is kicking off his 20th solo anniversary celebrations in a big way.
On August 15th, SUGIZO is kicking off a 3-month series of consecutive releases with a cover song. It’s not just any song; it’s David Bowie‘s “LIFE ON MARS?” And it’s not just any cover; it’s an orchestral cover. It will launch as a digital release on iTunes. The great thing is that it’s available in 109 countries worldwide, so you can (most likely) purchase it on your home iTunes!
It’s safe to say that many great artists and unique characters nowadays have drawn at least some inspiration from David Bowie. His sudden passing in January left millions heartbroken worldwide, and our own LUNA SEA guitarist was one of them.
Popular jazz pianist Takana Miyamoto participated in recording and helped with arrangement. Their powers combined created a spectacular release.
SUGIZO’s 3-month series (held in celebration of his 20th year of solo activities) will be followed by the release of a brand new album, 「音」 (Oto), in November. We’ll let you know when we have more details.
