MUSE’S ‘HOLLOW’ SMITHS TRIBUTE

The operatic rockers tackle the Morrissey/Marr classic 'Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want'...

MUSE have covered THE SMITHS‘ ‘PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET ME GET

WHAT I WANT’ on their new single.

Their version of the track, which originally featured on the seminal Manchester group’s 1985 album ‘Hatful Of Hollow’, features on Muse‘s forthcoming double A-side single ‘Feeling Good’/’Hyper Music’, which is released on November 12. The single also features a cover of Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’.

In related news, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has spoken about his recent recording sessions with Oasis songwriter Liam Gallagher.

Speaking in this morning’s London Metro newspaper, he said: “I played with Liam on some songs he’d written last winter. He’s got a load of really good tunes. He comes up with the weirdest chords, and just writes from the heart really.

“It’s not easy being him. I respect him because in his mind he thinks Elvissold out, Mick Jagger sold out and John Lydon sold out and he’s going to be the first person in his position to not do that.”
