The Daily Krapht – Sunny War – “Careless Love”
Earlier this week War released her cover of “Careless Love” from Bessie Smith to honor the blues artist as well as celebrate the HBO biopic that will premiere this weekend.
“Bessie Smith is one of my favorite Blues women,” says War, “and this song lyrically really speaks to me. I love how she speaks of love as if it is a living being. That’s how I like to think of love, some kind of monster that possesses and tortures you”
War’s stripped down version of “Careless Love” pays respect to the woman and the music. It’s a simple tribute that speaks volumes.
One listen and listeners will be captivated to dig deeper and see what else War has to offer. Lucky for us, there’s a lot. For more on Sunny War, be sure to find her on Facebook, Twitter and Bandcamp. All links available at the bottom of the page.
