I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee!
As you might remember the debut album “Ghost River” of the Danish Dream Pop duo BlackieBlueBird was released end of last year and has since received fantastic reviews. After their first concerts the band decided to release a cover version of “Oh Susanna” written by Stephen Foster in 1847, which is considered to be the very first global “pop hit”. It is a song well-known in numerous versions with varying lyrics that opted to eliminate the racially offensive language of the original.
BlackieBlueBird has recorded their own version, elevating “Oh Susanna” to the dreamy and feverish song it always deserved to be known as. You can find the download or stream of the song at Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and many more digital services.
