Kate Pierson – “Venus” (Shocking Blue Cover) Video

B-52s singer Kate Pierson struck out on her own last year with her solo debut Guitars And Microphones, and it seems there’s more where that came from. She’s putting out a new 7″ single, “Venus” b/w “Radio In Bed,” next month as one of Jack White’s Third Man Records’ Record Store Day releases, which will also include a 2xLP set (one red, one white) of the White Stripes’ never-before-released 2001 sessions with John Peel and a limited edition 7″ of Jack White covering Stevie Wonder’s “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” pressed on It’s Not Easy Being Green Colored Vinyl™. Both of Pierson’s tracks were produced by White himself, and today the a-side, a cover of Shocking Blue’s 1969 hit “Venus,” has arrived, along with a kitschy video from director Brad Holland. Watch and listen below.

Here’s the original:
