I’m a huge fan of Pearl Jam‘s song “Black”. It’s a tragic, beautiful song that I will never, ever get tired of hearing. That’s why I was so intrigued to hear this cover done by Orphaned Land guitarist Yossi Sassi with Kokhav Nolad (the Israeli version of Pop Idol) winner Diana Golbi on vocals. It’s very much the same song but with a lot of Middle Eastern influences injected into it. It’s a unique spin on the song and one that grows on me more and more with each listen. Plus, Golbi has one hell of a voice. Check it out below.
