Published May 22, 2017This summer King Crimson are set to take off on a North American tour — a trek that comes as the prog-rock legends gear up for a new EP covering David Bowie's classic "Heroes." Now, you can hear that anticipated redo for yourself.
King Crimson's new EP is fittingly called Heroes, and it's due out on June 2. For an idea what to expect from the release, you can now hear the group's take on the 1977 Bowie classic below via a new video.
"King Crimson performed 'Heroes' at the Admiralspalast in Berlin as a celebration, a remembrancing and an homage," King Crimson's Robert Fripp said in a statement. "The concert was 39 years and one month after the original sessions at the Hansa Tonstudio overlooking the Berlin Wall. This is released in the 40th anniversary year."
