Lena Hall Announces Obsessed: David Bowie EP
Hall will cover five Bowie classics for her eighth installment of Obsessed.
SKB Records has announced that the eighth month of Tony winner Lena Hall's yearlong series of Obsessed EPs will be Obsessed: David Bowie. The EP will be released in digital and streaming formats on Friday, August 3, and is now available for preorder at www.LenaHallObsessed.com as well as iTunes and Amazon. Customers who preorder the EP will immediately receive a download of the first single, "Rebel Rebel."
Obsessed: David Bowie begins with an acoustic version of "Rebel Rebel" followed by "Lazarus," the title song from the only stage musical that Bowie wrote; "Queen Bitch" from Bowie's 1971 breakthrough album Hunky Dory; "As the World Falls Down," written for the 1986 fantasy film Labyrinth; and "Five Years," the rarely covered opening number of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.
Obsessed will ultimately consist of 12 EPs, each released on the first Friday of every month. Performance music videos have been created for all 54 songs in the series, and a new music video will premiere every week in 2018. Previous releases in Hall's Obsessed series have focused on Jack White, Radiohead, P!nk, the Cranberries, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, in which she gave her breakout, Tony-winning performance as Yitzhak in the musical's 2014 Broadway revival.
