The Howard Stern Tribute To David Bowie, hosted by longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti, airs this Friday, Feb. 9, at 10 p.m EST on SiriusXM's Howard 101 channel. Along with Taylor's salute to the Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) hit, the show will also feature tribute performances from Greta Van Fleet (“The Jean Genie”), Spoon's Britt Daniels (“Never Let Me Down”), Lisa Loeb (“All The Young Dudes”), Biffy Clyro (“Modern Love”), Peter Frampton (“Rebel Rebel”) and more.

“I've been a Bowie fan since I could walk,” Taylor says, who previously covered the late performer's “China Girl” with a group including Bush's Gavin Rossdale and the Cult's Ian Astbury at a David Bowie tribute concert last year. “He is so iconic; he's basically his own genre now. I chose 'Fashion' because when I first heard it, I was blown away by how much groove was in it and the attitude. This is my spin. It'll never touch the original, but I hope you all like it.”
Bowie died at 69 in January 2016 following a reported battle with liver cancer, just two days after the release of his 25th and final studio album, Blackstar. Watch the singer's original music video for “Fashion” below:
