To celebrate David Bowie’s 75th birthday and legacy the Swedish artist Di Leva releases a brilliant cover of Bowie’s epic song “Heroes”, one of the most beloved and important songs of our time, filled with positive energy. Di Leva’s cover of the song stays true to the dramatic original version, although through a “modern visionary lens”. His version of “Heroes” brings new light to the message of freedom and love, more urgent than ever in today’s world of global challenges, conflict, and segregation.
In 2018 Di Leva created and starred in a bestselling show based on the life of the late David Bowie, one of his most important sources of artistic inspiration as a teenager. After the first performances of the tribute show in Stockholm – featuring classic Bowie songs and personal favorites such as “Heroes”, Space Oddity, Life On Mars, and Starman – Di Leva still tours with his successful and sold-out show all over Sweden.
Of course, “Heroes” is one of the highlights of the show, and the new single will surely delight both his many established fans, as well as David Bowie’s international army of fans and lovers of classic rock.
Di Leva is one of Sweden’s most recognized and popular artists. Throughout his long career, he’s always been a beacon of love, hope, and unity. During the last 30 years, he’s had numerous hits, and his songs are regularly on rotation on Swedish radio.
With his upcoming space-themed project and concept album The Hybrids Di Leva this year looks forward to “a future so bright we will have to wear shades!”. The adventure started at Storm Area 51 Basecamp Festival in Nevada, USA in September 2019, where Di Leva had the world premiere for the music video Men In Black, his first single from the album.
Di Leva’s long and constantly developing career has made him one of the most recognized people in Sweden. During his career, he has not only written and produced several hit singles and albums, been constantly on tour, and received awards for both his music and live performances (including the Swedish Grammy Award for Best Artist), but he has also made several TV shows, concert tours and theatre plays, including a highly acclaimed performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
“Heroes” is Di Leva’s first international release in English since 2020 and follows his successful latest Swedish single releases, Hunger and Faller.
