Today, Montreal-based singer and songwriter Annabel Gutherz shares the acoustic video for her cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars.”
Filmed in a seemingly endless field of sunflowers, the acoustic video for “Life on Mars” is a vibrant and stunning visual. In contrast to the theatrical and full-bodied sound of her original cover, Annabel’s raw and powerful vocals take centerstage on the stripped back version of the song.
Annabel writes about her decision to cover David Bowie’s “Life on Mars”: “My interpretation of the rich narrative conveyed through Bowie’s abstract and surreal lyricism is one of sadness, longing, and hope, with a commentary about society and the media that still rings true today. I love the emotional dimensionality of the story being told, the melody, the production… everything! I hope to honor Bowie, one of the most prolific and brilliant artists of our time, and his lasting legacy with this cover.”
