Devendra Banhart has shared a new cover of the Tyrannosaurus Rex song ‘Scenescof’.
The recording is part of a new Marc Bolan based tribute record, with ‘AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan and T.Rex’ featuring an all-star cast.
Nick Cave launched the record with a T. Rex cover, but Devendra Banhart has decided to look earlier.
Tackling psych-folk favourite ‘Scenescof’, he looks to formative influence Tyrannosaurus Rex for inspiration.
It’s a neat, entirely faithful cover, with the West Coast songwriter saluting the English great.
Tune in now.
‘AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan and T.Rex’ will be released on September 4th.
