Caravan Palace – Black Betty

To be honest I can’t remember them performing it at their terrific Lowlands show last August, but it’s a fact Caravan Palace have played Lead Belly’s Black Betty quite a lot in their concerts. On New Year’s Eve they were invited to Jools Holland’s Annual Hootenanny, where they did the cover as well.

Afterwards, by popular demand, they placed the audio of the studio version on YouTube. And guess what? Even though it doesn’t move, it’s the fastest growing Caravan Palace video ever. In one week’s time, it amassed nearly a million views.

Their next single proper, Midnight, will be released later this month. In the meantime, enjoy this jazzed-up version of Black Betty.
