Black Hole Sun
Currently residing in New Orleans, internationally acclaimed Welsh singer-songwriter Judith Owen has over the years established herself as one of our most exciting artists, boasting a sparkly, jazzy, soul-infused voice to die for, always presented in a context of exquisite musical arrangements. A prolific songwriter, Judith's 12th album,
Rediscovered, is where she instead breathes new life into other people's material, old as well as new, and from vastly discrepant genres. Ever excitingly inventive in her musical expression, Judith consistently surrounds herself with world-class musicians such as Leland Sklar, Paul Beard, George Shelby and Michael 'Maz' Maher, ensuring that her statements become and remain rare musical highlights, on stage as well as in the studio. Rediscover gems such as Drake's Hotline Bling, Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water or Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You in completely new transformations, helmed by Judith Owen's impressive vocals. The first Sweden-exclusive single from this amazing work is a glorious 5/4-take á la Dave Brubeck on Chris Cornell's Soundgarden hit Black Hole Sun, which thematically touches at depression as an emotional state.
