Watch: Michael Stipe Covers Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World”

R.E.M frontman Michael Stipe chose to sing Bowie for his first solo television appearance and definitely didn’t fail to impress.

Alongside a pianist, Stipe belted out a classical rendition of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. His vocal range brings a certain originality and simplicity that recreates the vibe of the famously covered song.

Stipe will be performing at a David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall this weekend.
