Grammy-nominated and band of the moment the psychedelic soul duo Black Pumas have joined forces with indie-pop outfit Lucious for an updated collaborative cover of The Kinks “Strangers”. Released to streaming platforms on Thursday via ATO Records, the new cover also appears in the promo trailer for the forthcoming YouTube Originals documentary, Life In A Day 2020. The film premiered as part of the Sundance Film Festival recently.

“To me, ‘Strangers’ has a really interesting way of cutting through straight to the soul,” Black Pumas singer Eric Burton said in a press statement about the song, which The Kinks first released way back in 1970 on the band’s “Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One” album. “I had such a good time inhabiting this honest reflection on love lost and the triumph that is a resilient human spirit.”

In addition to the documentary trailer arriving Thursday, the band also shared an eight-minute behind-the-scenes featurette showing how their cover with Lucius came to be in the recording studio.

Black Pumas and Lucius have released a new cover of The Kinks classic “Strangers.”
