NOISEY PREMIERS KIM WILDE ‘EVERY TIME I SEE YOU I GO WILD’ (ORG. BY STEVIE WONDER)
BRITISH ELECTRONIC FOUNDATION SET TO RELEASE ‘MUSIC OF QUALITY AND DISTINCTION VOL 3, DARK’ JUNE 11TH ON THE END RECORDS
Noisey/VICE is happy to announce the premiere of pop icon Kim Wilde’s imaginative cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Every Time I See You I Go Wild’ off British Electronic Foundation’s upcoming release ‘Music For Quality And Distinction Vol 3, Dark’ slated for release June 11th on The End Records.
Syth pop pioneer Martyn Ware (Heaven 17, the Human League) is the brain child behind this cult favorite series; coming out every 10 years the ‘Music Of Quality And Distinction’ series has featured legendary guest artists including Tina Turner, Sandie Shaw, Erasure, and Terence Trent D’Arby.
The third release ‘Dark’, as the title would suggest, is the unique reworking of covers from stars who shine brightly, dimming the lights for personal takes on twisted torch songs. Boy George performs Iggy Pop’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, Kim Wilde takes on Stevie Wonders ‘Every time I see you, I go wild’, Kate Jackson of The Long Blondes sings ‘Picture This’ originally performed by Blondie, Shingai Shoniwa from The Noisettes sings The Beach Boys ‘God Only Knows’ with plenty of other gems to discover from the likes of; Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Andy Bell and Glenn Gregory.
