Black Pumas, Lucius Cover The Kinks’ ‘Strangers’ In Trailer For ‘Life In A Day’

YouTube Originals unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming feature-length documentary Life in a Day 2020, which includes a cover of The Kinks‘ “Strangers” performed by Black Pumas and Lucius.

“To me, ‘Strangers’ has a really interesting way of cutting through straight to the soul,” said Black Pumas frontman Eric Burton.
“I had such a good time inhabiting this honest reflection on love lost and the triumph that is a resilient human spirit.”

“I think this is one of the most thoughtful records I have ever done,” adds producer Adrian Quesada. “We wanted to show the original ‘Strangers’ its due respect. We really tried to honor the song and its timeless lyrics. The Lucius vocals gave the song another dimension, and I only wish we could have recorded with them in person.”

Life in a Day 2020 is a documentary film directed by Kevin MacDonald. It is the sequel to the 2011 version of Life in a Day.

Like its predecessor, the film consists of a wide array of selected video clips showing things happening in the world on one day: July 25, 2020.

Life In A Day 2020 launches for free Saturday, February 6, on the film’s YouTube channel.
