Backed solely by a piano, Kozelek and Patton’s take on Win stays true to the bittersweet melodies of the original, which appeared on Bowie’s 1975 album Young Americans. The pair’s cover can be heard at the Sun Kil Moon website, while the original is available below.
Kozelek and Patton have also recorded a cover of 10CC’s’ I’m Not In Love which will appear on Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites when it’s released on 27th May this year. Other tracks on the album include covers of Modest Mouse and Bob Seger, while vocals from Low’s Mimi Parker will also feature somewhere. Catch the full tracklist, below.
Bowie died in January this year after an 18-month battle with cancer. He was 69. Since Bowie’s death, his music has also been covered by the likes of Sarah Blasko, Gang Of Youths and, uh, Smash Mouth.
