King Hannah – “Like A Prayer” (Madonna Cover)

King Hannah – “Like A Prayer” (Madonna Cover)

Band To Watch King Hannah released their debut album I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me last year, and next month they’ll be touring the UK with Kurt Vile. Ahead of that tour, the duo have shared a cover of Madonna’s classic “Like A Prayer.”

“We wanted to take this Madonna song and really let it breathe with lots of space and sparse instrumentation that slowly and subtly builds,” the band describe in a statement. “The delicate arrangement of pulsing synths and scratchy guitars allows Hannah’s voice to take centre stage until the track eventually (in the extended version) breaks out into a noisy instrumental section fueled by thrashing drums and distorted guitars. We wanted to take a song by such an iconic artist and drag it into the world of King Hannah.”
