Thao has shared a cover of Björk’s classic Debut single ‘Human Behaviour’ for Mental Health Awareness Week.
For the cover, Thao teamed up with the charity Sounds of Saving to deliver a stirring rendition of a classic that can hopefully raise awareness and funds for the charity and the importance of mindfulness.
As Thao told Stereogum: “I chose Bjork’s ‘Human Behaviour’ because to me it marks a renewal and a revival of my own interest in music, in my own recommitment to the joy of music.”
The emerging artist continued: “Growing up, most of the access to music I had was only the radio. I didn’t have an in to music that wasn’t easily accessible to me, you know?”
Before concluding: “And so to choose a song that I don’t know that well by an artist that I don’t know that well, but whose energy and whose commitment and devotion to music is so well known, it was a great opportunity to embody the difference that I’m looking for.”
