Kesha Shares Powerful Cover Of T. Rex's Children Of The Revolution

Thursday, 25 June 2020 Written by Sophie Williams

Kesha has released a triumphant reinterpretation of T.Rex’s Children Of The Revolution.

The cover of the 1972 hit single, which you can spin below, will feature on the upcoming Marc Bolan tribute album, ‘AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan and T. Rex’. The 26-track collection is set for release on September 4 via BMG Records, and also includes Nick Cave’s previously shared rendition of the 1968 glam-rock classic, Cosmic Dancer.

She 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 honouring 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 honouring one of the most magical artists of the 20th century.”

Elsewhere, Kesha’s last full-length effort was the alt-pop driven ‘High Road’, which landed in February.
