Country Artist Sturgill Simpson’s Bizarre Cover of Nirvana Classic “In Bloom”
For his latest album, country artist Sturgill Simpson recorded a cover of Nirvana’s 1991 hit “In Bloom.”
A country version of “In Bloom” is strange enough, but this video by director Matt Mahurin is completely bizarre. What the hell is it all about? I have no idea, but I’m quite fond of Mahurin’s style…even if the sound of Kurt Cobain’s lyrics sung in twangs and croons makes me shudder.
This song is from Sturgill Simspon’s upcoming album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth available April 15th.
