The rare total solar eclipse is just moments away – and unless you’re sitting neatly on a picnic blanket with a pair of vision-protecting glasses in hand, you’re probably chilling at home watching it on TV like the rest of us. But thanks to an unexpected musical treat today, you can put the talkative news anchors on mute and watch it all go down to the perfect song.
Diane Coffee, a.k.a. Shaun Fleming, really impressed us when he guested on Run the Jewels‘ second album – then stunned us live, just before we interviewed him at 4Knots last year. Now we’ve got a whole new reason to love him: an orchestral cover of “Eclipse” from Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, revealed just for the once-in-a-lifetime occasion this afternoon. Enjoy the video right here.
“To celebrate my first eclipse, I thought it would be fun to share with you a live cover of ‘Eclipse,’ which is one of my favorite closing tracks of all time,” said Shaun. “‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is one of those records that always leaves me with goosebumps, no matter how many times I listen to it. This video was shot and recorded with my friends at Blockhouse Studio in Bloomington, IN.”
