Listen: Radiohead covers Glen Campbell’s ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’

A tribute to the late Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell, the Rhinestone Cowboy himself, passed away the morning of Tuesday, August 8. The 81 year old country legend had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s four years earlier, a diagnosis he coped with in his later music, most notably his final album, Adios, released just two months before his death.

A string of tribute covers have since surfaced on the internet, one being a Radiohead cover of “Rhinestone Cowboy,” recorded in 1993. Though it seems to be a collision of two worlds — Campbell’s country pop and Radiohead’s experimental rock — it goes to show the influence of his legacy.

Listen to the cover below.
