Overview:

An extraordinary tribute album to one of rock's great composers, Marc Bolan, which was also made under the direction of the legendary Hal Willner,

‘AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex’ is a collection of major stars including Elton John, U2, Joan Jett, Nick Cave, Peaches and Marc Almond who have reinterpreted and reimagined some of Marc Bolan & T.Rex’s greatest tracks including Jeepster, Bang A Gong (Get It On) and Ride A White Swan.

The album, which was made under the direction of Hal Willner who sadly passed away on 7th April, is launching along with the audio and video of Nick Cave’s moving reinterpretation of ‘Cosmic Dancer’. The

video will be included on Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Tee Vee, a newly launched 24 hour Nick Cave stream.

The single will have its first play on BBC 6Music by Mary Anne Hobbs 30/4 just after 1pm with the track impacting on 5th June.
