Offa Rex – “Sheepcrook And Black Dog”

The latest from Offa Rex, Olivia Chaney’s collaborative project with the Decemberists, is a hard rock interpretation of the classic folk song “Sheepcrook And Black Dog” in the vein of Black Sabbath. Offa Rex’s forthcoming album will feature 11 transformed renditions of British folk songs, of which we’ve already heard “The Old Churchyard,” “The Blackleg Miner,” and the album’s title track “The Queen Of Hearts.” Hear “Sheepcrook And Black Dog” below.

The Queen Of Hearts will be out 7/14 on Nonesuch.
