Kesha Covers T. Rex’s “Children Of The Revolution”
- American singer-songwriter Kesha joined in British rock band T. Rex's upcoming tribute album “AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan”, which is set to be released on September 4, 2020.
She covered “Children Of The Revolution” on the album. In addition to Kesha, the album features Nick Cave, U2, Elton John, Peaches, Father John Misty, Joan Jett, Lucinda Williams and more.
The original version of “Children Of The Revolution” was released in 1972. The song reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart. It was written by Marc Bolan.
Kesha said, “Through a stroke of luck, I met the incredibly talented and kind, Hal Willner. We were in the same studio and he said he liked my red nudie suit, and then when he mentioned that he was working on a project that involved honoring Marc Bolan, I excitedly started rambling about how much T. Rex has influenced my music and my style. Right there we decided to record our own incarnation of ‘Children of the Revolution,’ a motherfucker of a song! I’m excited for the world to finally hear it! This project was so exciting and important to the late great Hal, and I’m humbled to be a part of this project honoring one of the most magical artists of the 20th century.”
