‘Life on Mars’ is the new single from highly regarded classical singer Joanna Forest, whose debut album ‘Stars Are Rising’ has already seen her hit number one in the official Classical album charts.
Forest is the first independent artist to have achieved this feat, and singles like this are precisely the reason why. It is, of course, a cover of the well known David Bowie single converted into a highly effective classical track. To get an idea of feel, think of how the film Moulin Rouge transformed pop songs into full, orchestral pieces.
‘Life on Mars’ is released officially today, while the album ‘Stars Are Rising’ can also be found on iTunes, Spotify and all the usual online haunts.
