Glenn Danzig covers Elvis and Black Sabbath for upcoming release

Plus Danzig contribute track to new movie soundtrack

Glenn Danzig has revealed that he has recorded cover versions of Elvis and Black Sabbath tracks for a forthcoming release.

In an interview with Vive Le Rock Magazine, the goth rocker discussed details of his on-going plan to put out a covers collection.

When asked what material will feature on the release, Danzig replied: “Well, Black Sabbath, of course. I love them! They are the key to so many things in my life. I’m also doing an Elvis cover for the record and another really cool thing that we’ve just done is a famous biker movie theme tune that we’ve totally trashed; it actually sounds more like early 70s punk. I really changed it around a lot.”

“So far I’ve done about seven or eight covers,” adds the singer, “laying down as many tracks as I feel like and maybe releasing a seven or eight song EP of the best ones once they’re done.”

Danzig recently contributed track ‘Black Hell’ to the soundtrack for recently released ‘The Hangover Part II’. The band were directly approached by the film’s director Todd Phillips and music supervisor George Drakoulius to be a part of the project. Danzig released their last studio album ‘Deth Red Sabaoth’ in 2010.
