Today, acclaimed singer-songwriter Valerie June shared her unearthly version of T. Rex’s 1971 classic “Cosmic Dancer.” June lends 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.”
Known for her unique blend of folk, country R&B and Americana, her one-of-a-kind voice and rapturous, deeply personal live performances, Valerie June has captured the unwavering attention of a loyal and world-wide audience. She recently wrapped her Astral Plane Solo Tour and is set to hit the road for headlining shows this month starting in St. Louis, MO on August 11th – full routing below.
