Today, Montreal-based singer and songwriter Annabel Gutherz will release her orchestral-pop interpretation of “Life on Mars” by David Bowie, one of her all-time favorite songs. Coinciding with the release of the new Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream, Annabel’s cover is a timely homage to the legendary artist.
“My interpretation of the rich narrative conveyed through Bowie’s abstract and surreal lyricism is one of sadness, longing, and hope, with a commentary about society and the media that still rings true today,” Annabel comments. “I love the emotional dimensionality of the story being told, the melody, the production… everything! I hope to honor Bowie, one of the most prolific and brilliant artists of our time, and his lasting legacy with this cover.”
