SASAMI covers Daniel Johnston's 'Sorry Entertainer'

After previously stunning us with her cover of System Of A Down's 'Toxicity' last year, SASAMI has returned once again to unveil another new rendition.

The new single sees her take on the Daniel Johnston classic 'Sorry Entertainer', and comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by actor and comedian Patti Harrison and Alan Resnick.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “I made my last album when I was in a very emotionally vulnerable and tender place, but after a couple years of touring those same subtle, more sensitive songs, the live show became louder and more volatile. A bit before the pandemic took hold I was really getting back into metal and numetal, so a couple months into quarantine I made an acoustic version of the System of a Down song "Toxicity." My sadness ripened into anger throughout 2020, and deeper into it I started experimenting with a heavier palette and decided to perform the inverse exercise of metallicizing an acoustic song. ‘Sorry Entertainer’ is my take on mixing the desperation of being a hopeless and powerless artist and the extremely powerful sounds of a metal band. Like giving a toddler a flamethrower... or a fullstack.”
