What if a hotelroom could “sing” of the life stories and events it had witnessed? Intrigued by that question, Canadian pianist and composer Chilly Gonzales and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cover conjure up the lifes of previous occupants of Hollywood’s Chateau Hotel Marmont. Many infamous and famous guests like actress Jean Harlow or Mark Twain’s daughter Clara inhabited the hotel’s room 29. Thus, the Deutsche Grammophon album appears as a 21st-century song cycle about glittering fantasy and often bleak reality of Hollywood and at the same time as metaphor for a place within each of us, home to our deepest desires and fantasies.

Read a complete review of this project here.

The melody haunted me and I realized it was taken from a Ryuichi Sakamoto track composed for the soundtrack of Babel

And looking for other versions on my iTunes, I found this song by Ibeyi who also borrowed the melody.
