Country musician Shooter Jennings and sp00ki rock artist Marilyn Manson have come together to cover David Bowie‘s ‘Cat People (Putting Out Fire)’, which is set to be released as part of Jennings’ upcoming album Countach (For Giorgio) – a collection of Giorgio Moroder covers.
Jennings told Rolling Stone that he grabbed Manson for this particular cover because he thought he’d “sound awesome doing it”.
“What’s awesome about Manson is all the people I’ve worked with who are singers always overanalyse their performance and want to recut shit … He’s none of that.” – Shooter Jennings (via Rolling Stone)
Together, both artists are part of a long list who have paid tribute to David Bowie, including The Flaming Lips, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, and Coldplay.
You can listen to the original version of ‘Cat People (Putting Out Fire)’ below, as well as the cover via Soundcloud.
Countach (For Giorgio) will be available digitally from March 11 via Black Country Rock Media.
