Portishead’s Beth Gibbons Covers Black Sabbath With Instru-Metal Band Gonga

Gonga - 'Black Sabbeth' album art

As we continue to wait for the long overdue solo LP Beth Gibbons is supposedly recording for Domino—it was announced nearly a year ago, with no mention of any new music since—the Portishead singer has popped up on her most unlikely collaboration yet: a cover of the title track from Black Sabbath’s debut album. Available in video form below, it features a note-for-note rendition of the sludge-dipped song by the instru-metal trio Gonga and Gibbons bringing some tormented soul vibes to her Ozzy vocals.

Have a listen here, and if you’re in the UK, look for the clear vinyl “Black Sabbeth” pressing that landed in bins last weekend for Record Store Day…
