Valerie June’s unearthly version of T. Rex’s 1971 classic “Cosmic Dancer” finds June lending her delicate and distinctive southern mysticism to Marc Bolan’s enchanting tune creating a melancholy and magical ode to innocence.
Valerie on the song’s meaning: “’Cosmic Dancer’ to me is a reminder that we don’t have to waste energy saying ‘shut the hell up’ to any voice telling us that our light is not needed. We came to Earth to shine. We were called to radiate. There is one true belief: That we should spend our entire lives dancing in the light.”
