Dominic Harrison, known under the name Yungblud, is an English singer/songwriter who released his sophomore album weird! last year. He was last seen on Cover Me in 2019 with a cover mash-up of Drake and the Arctic Monkeys. Most recently he released a cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars.” The live performance was originally part of a live stream event held back in January to celebrate Bowie’s 74th birthday – Nine Inch Nails contributed too – and now released on YouTube. And, as an added bonus, it was played at the same moment NASA completed its most recent Mars landing.
AURORA – Across the Universe (The Beatles cover)
The first of a couple Beatles covers this month, AURORA’s “Across the Universe” doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it just removes a few spokes. The Norwegian singer-songwriter strips everything away but keys and a bunch of voices (there’s a guitarist too, though barely audible). It’s all the song needs.
