Head Full of Stars is a new musical project from Tucson's William Bernhard. The new song that he chose to record is a cover of a 1931 Cab Calloway classic "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea."

However, the song did not receive worldwide acclaim until Ella Fitzgerald recorded the song in 1961. Originally, the song was strictly in the jazz genre of music. Next, George Harrison put a folk music spin on this tune in the 1970's. He sang this song with a ukulele.

The cover of this song by Head Full of Stars has a psychedelic spin that is led with a heavy guitar. Bernhard's background in music is from when he lived in Seattle and worked with different artists in the Northwest like Sky Cries May, Gerald Collier, Fan Fiction, St. Kilda, and Voyager One.

The reason as to why he created the cover to this classic song was based upon a friendly challenge after listening to Ella Fitzgerald's version of the song.

"A friend and I challenged each other to do something creative to kickstart our projects we both had on the back burner. I was so happy with the results I decided to revive my Head Full of Stars project and have since recorded a couple of originals which I'll release in the coming months."

The lyrics to this song are still relevant over 90 years later because the song is about relationships when the mind is saying to move on to another relationship while contradicting the love that is still felt for that particular person within the heart. Listen to your heart and always choose love.
