The cover of ‘I Would Die 4 U’ was recorded as part of the heavy metal internet talk show Two Minutes To Late Night‘s series of Bedroom Covers, and was released on Prince’s birthday (June 7). It was curated by the show’s host Gwarsenio Hall, aka Jordan Olds.
Two Minutes To Late Night pays contributors for its covers thanks to Patreon donations. All of the artists featured on the new cover have donated their fees to the coalition Dallas Hope Charities.
Previous installments of the Bedroom Covers series have included members of Deftones and Killswitch Engage covering Bjork, members of My Chemical Romance, Distillers and Murder By Death covering Annie Lennox, and Gwar‘s Elton John parody song ‘Stab Into Christmas’.
The new version of ‘I Would De 4 U’ is not Lamb Of God’s first remotely-recorded collaborative cover. In May, they covered Bad Brains classic ‘I Against I’ with help from Jason Aalon Butler of Fever 333.
