We are excited to announce that in a few days we will begin working on new Xu Xu Fang music with Alain Johannes. Alain is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, mixer, engineer who has recently recorded, produced, mixed, and performed with bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Eagles of Death Metal, Mark Lanegan, UNKLE, Desert Sessions, etc. Last year, Alain released a stellar solo album called Spark, and his former bands What is This and 11 were pretty amazing, too. Basically, the dude rules.
Here is Xu Xu Fang's cover of David Bowie's China Girl from the benefit album, We Were So Turned On: A Tribute to David Bowie. The compilation features a ton of bands including Duran Duran, A Place To Bury Strangers, Warpaint, Carla Bruni, Vivian Girls, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and many more. 100% of the profits go to the charity War Child.
We are covering the song China Girl for a David Bowie Tribute record. The album, released on Manimal Vinyl, will also feature bands such as Duran Duran, A Place To Bury Strangers, Warpaint, Keren Ann, Chairlift, among others.
