Kesha’s Children Of The Revolution cover shared from Hal Willner’s Marc Bolan tribute album

AngelHeaded Hipster

Kesha‘s contribution to Hal Willner’s Marc Bolan tribute album AngelHeaded Hipster has been shared.

Kesha is a special guest on the album covering Children Of The Revolution, joining the likes of Nick Cave, Joan Jett, Father John Misty and U2 who between them will present a comprehensive celebration of Bolan’s music when the album is released on September 4th. “Through a stroke of luck, I met the incredibly talented and kind, Hal Willner,” Kesha regales.

“We were in the same studio and he said he liked my red nudie suit, and then when he mentioned that he was working on a project that involved honouring Marc Bolan, I excitedly started rambling about how much T. Rex has influenced my music and my style. Right there we decided to record our own incarnation of Children Of The Revolution. I’m excited for the world to finally hear it! This project was so exciting and important to the late great Hal, and I’m humbled to be a part of this project honouring one of the most magical artists of the 20th century.”

Willner assembled this cast of stars before his untimely death back in April after he, ‘became immersed in this artist by listening to everything, talking to Bolan experts and fans, researching his reviews and interviews’.
