AJ Lambert has provided a marvellous and curious cover of Shame’s One Rizla, and she and Shame have also explained brilliantly how and why this has happened:
“I have only ever heard this song as a middle-aged woman. Through that particular filter – plus my own experiences with the strangeness of love – pride, weariness and desperation are the things I hear in it,” AJ told NME, and here’s Shame filling in the key gap: “We are super excited and honoured to have AJ cover One Rizla! Ever since she first housed us in LA, we’ve been firm friends and this cover is a lovely thing to mark that friendship.”
There you have it, diverse musical housemates equals big win for music.
