Motörhead is set to release "Under Cöver" on Sept. 1 - a collection that will include a previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s “Heroes.”
Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, the Bowie cover was one of the last songs the band recorded together.
“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell. “And Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
“[Lemmy] was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “Not only because it turned out so well, but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
The rest of the album contains takes on other rock and metal classics including: “God Save The Queen” (Sex Pistols), “Rockaway Beach,” (The Ramones), Breaking The Law” (Judas Priest) and “Whiplash” (Metallica).
Under Cöver will be available digitally, on CD and on vinyl. There will also be a box set that includes both the CD and vinyl along with a patch and VIP guest pass.
