Tom Waits Streams Blind Willie Johnson Cover

(The Blues) Tom Waits has released a stream of his take on Blind Willie Johnson's John The Revelator in another cut from all-star tribute album God Don't Never Change.

Waits has already been heard performing The Soul Of A Man, the opening track to the record which also features Lucinda Williams, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the Blind Boys Of Alamaba and others.

Alligator Records say: "Johnson sang his sanctified gospel lyrics with overwhelming intensity, his deep, raspy voice accompanying his haunting, blues-drenched guitar playing." Stream the song here.
