Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter Beth Hart recently announced her new album entitled A Tribute To Led Zeppelin for February 25, 2022 release. To celebrate the occasion, Hart has unveiled her cover of Led Zeppelin’s 1969 classic “Good Times Bad Times.” You can listen to both versions down below.
Hart’s version is perhaps more intense and energetic than the original, her voice is rough and powerful offering glimpses of Robert Plant’s signature vocals while she belts out the iconic opening lyrics “In the days of my youth / I was told what it means to be a [wo]man / Now I’ve reached that age / I’ve tried to do all those things the best I can.” Her delivery is truly remarkable as she produces each note with the highest quality and precision. The backing instrumentals closely follow the blueprints of the original song with flair.
Hart’s intent with the nine-track album was to highlight the flexibility and range of the iconic English rock band: “It’s so beautifully done, it’s timeless. It will go on forever. Sometimes people come along, and they’re from another planet, and they make these pieces of art which will forever be.”
