Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes To Release Revised Covers Album, Mary J. Blige Cover Now Streaming


Eagles Of Death Metal vocalist/guitarist Jesse Hughes will be releasing a revised covers album later this spring, having elected to title it “Eagles Of Death Metal Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote“. The album will find Hughes putting his own spin on the works of various other artists and will land in stores on June 07th via UMe. Pre-orders for the record are available now here.

You may recall that a very similar covers album was released late last year under the name of ‘Pigeons Of Shit Metal‘—an insult Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose called band back in 2006 after their tour together ended poorly. Notably this album features a cover of Guns N’ Roses‘ “It’s So Easy“.
