Dustin Kensrue Covers Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’
Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood Hits Streets Friday 3/18
Singer-songwriter Dustin Kensrue will be releasing his third solo album, Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood, this Friday, March 18, 2016 via Vagrant Records.
Comprised of ten tracks, the live cover album serves as a follow up to 2015’s Carry The Fire which Billboard hailed “tuneful, infectious…a folk framework with a rock backbone.”
“For years I’ve peppered my solo sets with a variety of cover songs,” notes Dustin. “Playing a cover song is a bit like stepping into someone else’s skin for a moment, inhabiting a story that came from somewhere totally outside of your experience and even your imagination. The new record is a sampling of some of my favorites that I’ve tried on over the years. It’s a challenge to find songs that will really shine when stripped to their bones and these have all proved their worth.”
Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood showcases Dustin covering some of pop-culture’s most important songs, both past and present, from artists such as Cold War Kids, Radiohead, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Brand New and The Counting Crows to name a few.
