TV On the Radio has recorded a cover of David Bowie's classic, "Heroes." The song comes from the 1977 album of the same name. The cover is a contribution to the forthcoming War Child: Heroes compilation. The set is due out February 16, 2009 and will also feature Hot Chip covering Joy Division, The Kooks covering The Kinks and Lily Allen tackling The Clash.
The concept of "Heroes" is that the biggest legends in music, including Sir Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Brian Wilson and The Clash, select one of the classic tracks from their own songwriting canon, and nominate an artist from the next generation to create a modern reworking of that classic song.
In related news, the band will be appearing on Saturday Night Live this Saturday (February 7, 2009).
