Today is the day that huge Kev Carmody tribute album Cannot Buy My Soul arrives. From it, we have Electric Fields delivering the most stunning version of ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’. It comes with a powerful video too.
This serves as a really special tribute to Carmody. He co-wrote this song with Paul Kelly about the Gurindji people’s fight for land rights in the Northern Territory. The fight was led by Vincent Lingiari.
Lingiari’s voice is sampled throughout the Electric Fields cover as well as Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara language. They seamlessly merge the original beauty of the track with traditional culture touches, all while sprinkling a touch of 2020’s sonic landscape in.
You can catch the Electric Fields cover and video down below.
Also appearing on the Kev Carmody tribute album is Courtney Barnett with ‘Just For You’ which you can watch here.
As well as that, Bernard Fanning takes on ‘Elly’, Jimmy Barnes joins Kasey Chambers on ‘Black Bees’, and Archie Roach takes on ‘Cannot Buy My Soul’.
