Wilco recently shared their rendition of David Bowie‘s 1969 hit “Space Oddity” in celebration of the late icon’s 77th birthday on January 8.
The rendition, which is from the band’s 2023 performance on Mountain Stage (a public radio show distributed by NPR Music), will feature on an upcoming compilation titled Live On Mountain Stage: Outlaws and Outliers, due on April 19th via Oh Boy Records.
Wilco’s version sees Jeff Tweedy conveying the tune’s enduring appeal for humanity through his lovely vocals.
“As a gratefully, if not begrudgingly, Earth-bound band, it’s always an honor and a challenge to tackle any of David Bowie’s space-soaring arrangements,” the band said in a statement. “Striving to reach the heights of his freedom and talent is a wise goal for any band. We thank Mountain Stage for letting us give this song another home on Earth.”
