“The main key was finding an emotive and groundbreaking vocalist, and we did just that with Macy Gray, who is truly inimitable in every song that she sings, including this one.” – stated Michael Goldwasser, producer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist of Easy Star All-Stars

‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide’ showcases Macy Gray’s one-of-a-kind voice. The passionate rendition also offers a fresh spin on the original, forging a laid-back atmosphere across a bounding drum beat and swaggering horns. The track is paired with a stop motion video, taking viewers through the journey of two cats during an evening in a paper town.

‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide’ is the final taste of Easy Star All-Stars’ “Ziggy Stardub” tribute album.
