Today we share Cuff The Duke’s take on David Bowie’s “Star.” Off of the bands EP In Our Time II, the cover of “Star” shows maybe the biggest breadth of ability from Cuff The Duke in regards to their covers so far.
We imagine that covers of David Bowie songs are always met with a certain amount of skepticism, but these guys really do pull it off! Everything about this is solid; it has enough of Cuff The Duke’s personal stamp on it, but it is still so much a reflection of Bowie’s sound.
Check out The cover of “Star” as well as why they chose this song below! Also be sure to pick up Cuff The Duke's latest release Union via Paper Bag Records now!
"Star", Our record label, Paper Bag Records, celebrated it's 10 year anniversary this past fall and every band on the label chose a song off of David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Star Dust and recorded it for a compilation that would be released. We chose the song Star. You really can't go wrong with a single song from that record. We were really happy with how our version turned out so we decided to include it on our covers EP as well.
