Singer-songwriter Dustin Kensrue will be releasing his third solo album, “Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood”, on March 18, 2016 via Vagrant Records. Comprised of ten tracks, the album serves as a follow up to 2015’s “Carry The Fire”.
“For years I've peppered my solo sets with a variety of cover songs,” notes Dustin. “Playing a cover song is a bit like stepping into someone else’s skin for a moment, inhabiting a story that came from somewhere totally outside of your experience and even your imagination. The new record is a sampling of some of my favorites that I've tried on over the years. It’s a challenge to find songs that will really shine when stripped to their bones and these have all proved their worth.”
“Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood” showcases Dustin covering some of pop-culture’s most important songs, both past and present, from artists such as Cold War Kids, Radiohead, Brand New, Leonard Cohen and The Counting Crows to name a few. Today, check out Dustin’s take on Tom Waits’ “Down There By The Train”:
