Spanning genres, disciplines, the work of Arthur Russell is almost unfeasibly broad.
Shifting from country to disco, avant classical to pop, the revered artist's catalogue doesn't really have a fulcrum, a central point.
However it Arthur Russell has one stand out song, one emblematic track then it's perhaps 'This Is How We Walk On The Moon'.
Quite heart-breakingly uplifting, the song is to be covered by Jose Gonzalez for the new Red Hot compilation 'Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell'.
Available to stream online, Gonzalez has also shared the following note: "It was one of those songs that I’d heard but didn’t pay that much attention to before, but once I started listening with the cover in mind it really grew on me. I began to hear the potential in the simplicity."
