You Pretty Things” invokes concepts of the ever-evolving races of humanity, providing images of strangers joining to better understand the state of society, with refrain lyrics like “You gotta make way for the Homo Superior” and ongoing urges to “wake up” and think about “the world to come.”Watch the uplifting performance below:Tedeschi Trucks Band included the Bowie song as a bonus track on their most recent album Let Me Get By. Watch a live version below:last_img read more
