ANOHNI has released two brand new covers of songs by Bob Dylan and Nina Simone.
The tracks, Dylan effort ‘It’s All over Now, Baby Blue’ and Simone track ‘Be My Husband’, have been made available to stream on major platforms now before they are released on 7″ in October.
“I recorded ‘It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue’ with Kevin Barker one afternoon a few years ago. I listened to it recently and it reminded me of Now, a nausea of nostalgia for the suffering of the present, or even the future,” ANOHNI said of the Dylan cover which also comes with an official music video.
Adding: “I did a couple of songs by Bob Dylan at that time, encouraged by Hal Willner, the producer who we lost to Covid 19 in April. I hope that this period, and this repugnant presidency, will be over soon, and that these bigots and apocalyptic capitalists and evangelicals will crawl back into their rotten little holes. But how can this happen unless the American media and social media are forced to tell the truth?
“I am glad to see the mobilization of Black Lives Matter and the re-emergence of the Occupy movement. When Biden said ‘Americans don’t want revolution, they want a return to decency,’ he was wrong. We all know deep down that the continuation of our civilizations for much longer will require seismic change.”
