British label BBE Music has shared a cover of David Bowie’s 1977 song “Sound and Vision” by Helado Negro (aka Roberto Carlos Lange). It will be featured on their upcoming Bowie tribute compilation album, Modern Love: A David Bowie Tribute Album, which is due out May 28. Listen to Helado Negro’s cover below.

Lange speaks about the cover in a press release, stating: “The cover I imagined was something living in between sleep and awake where sound and vision dominate. Residue from your dream state mixed in with waking up and stirring into what the day will be.”

Modern Love also features Jeff Parker, We Are KING, Meshell Ndegeocello, Khruangbin, Matthew Tavares, L’Rain, Nia Andrews, and more.

Lange’s most recent album as Helado Negro, This Is How You Smile, came out back in 2019 on RVNG. It featured the song “Please Won’t Please,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. A posthumously released EP by David Bowie, titled Is It Any Wonder?, was released last year on Parlophone.
