“We’ve always wanted to take a shot at covering an iconic alternative song, and ‘Somebody Told Me’ has always been one of those tracks that oozes pure energy, and has crazy good hooks that we felt we could transform into a great rock version.”

He added: “We are very happy to present this cover as one of the projects birthed out of the COVID downtime and hope it’s fun for all fans to check out and tap their feet to.”

In the comments section, one surprised fan described the energetic track as “the cover that I didn’t know that I needed”, while another said: “The unexpected fire, damn what a way to wake up.”

This comes after Motionless In White released their four-track EP ‘Another Life / Eternally Yours: Motion Picture Collection’ last month.
