Indie supergroup, Planetarium performed a touching tribute to David Bowie in Paris. The indie supergroup’s performers Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly and James Mcalister kicked off their tour behind a recently collaborative debut album, Planetarium. After the entire album, the performers surprised fans by playing one more song. It was a cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” The song was an emotional and heart-warming piece that celebrated Bowie’s life. The tribute was also a great fit for the album Planetarium.
Songs like “Neptune,” “Jupiter,” “Saturn,” “Venus,” “Mars,” “Kuiper’s Belt,” Halley’s Comet” and “Black Energy” encapsulate a perfect soundtrack for space. A full review of the Planetarium album can be read at MXDWN.com here.
