It’s said that music has the power to transform. But what if the transformation is death? Death by suicide?
On the latest installment of Global Notes with Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia, we take a dive into a new album that features different versions of one song: a song that was said to have driven people to suicide when it was first released in 1933.
The song is Gloomy Sunday: The Hungarian Suicide Song. Piranha Records has issued a compilation that features not only the original recording but up to date versions from various global artists.
We get the story of the record’s release from Piranha’s Yusuf Sahilli.
