LISTEN: Jape covers ‘Ashes to Ashes’ by David Bowie as a tribute to the late great star.

Electro songwriting wunderkind Jape, AKA Richie Egan, has just released a brilliant cover of David Bowie’s ‘Ashes to Ashes’ as a tribute to the singer who died on Monday following an 18 month battle with cancer. Jape had this to say:

“Just like all the rest of us, I was so shocked and sad to hear of David Bowie’s death last Monday – it felt like such a surreal day. I couldn’t really process it and the only thing I could think to do was record a version of Ashes to Ashes – I think when somebody dies their spirit hangs around the world for a bit, kind of like the last flames of a fire, I locked myself in studio for last four days and tried to feel his immense spirit in the ether. Matty B helped with some keys and him and Emelie did this cover .. Check it ..”
