Our dear friend, talented musician, and contributor to The Chelsea Tribe, Martyn LeNoble, has just released an all-star cover of the David Bowie song, “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)”. Martyn and his longtime collaborator, Christian Eigner (Depeche Mode’s drummer), invited some exceptionally notable talent to contribute vocals to this particular track, including Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Soulsavers) and Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode).
From the words of Martyn himself, “It truly was a labor of love, a farewell and a ‘thank you!’ Everyone’s contribution lifted the track. So long David Bowie.”
100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Liver Foundation, the song will only be released digitally, so download the song today.
