Amenra have shared an official video for their cover of Townes Van Zandt‘s “Black Crow Blues.” This track appears on the Townes Van Zandt tribute album, “Songs Of Townes Van Zandt Vol. III,” which was released earlier this year.
Guitarist Lennart Bossu commented:
“‘Black Crow Blues‘ was one of the first Townes Van Zandt songs that we ever heard, and it made us want to further explore his work. Our guitarist Mathieu shot the video, and our good friend Gilles Demolder recorded the audio, so we really kept things in the family for this one. We did no more than a couple of takes and then chose the one that came the closest to expressing the beautiful sadness of the original.”
Vocalist Colin H. Van Eeckhout added:
“First time I heard the song I knew it would need to be played at my funeral. Some songs just hit home.”
