Korn Could Finish Their Covers Album Amid Ongoing Downtime


Korn having been kicking around the idea of putting out a covers kovers album for quite some time now now. Back in 2018 the band’s frontman Jonathan Davis stated that the group had tracked yet to be released covers of The Charlie Daniels Band‘s “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and Billy Squier‘s “The Stroke” for it. At the time, Davis said of the outing:

“…It’s been a work in progress for a long time. But whenever we get a little free time, we go ahead and do a couple songs. One day it’ll see the light of day.”

Given that most bands out there are expecting to have quite a bit of free time in 2020, this could be the year that Korn finally find the time to wrap up the project. In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, the band’s guitarist Brian “Head” Welch said that the current downtime being faced amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic could give them a window, he commented:

“We have five or six [covers] done, and Jonathan Davis was really hyped on the idea of doing unique covers – just something fun. So we need to get back into that frame of mind. With this time off, that maybe could be a good idea – something to do while we’re at home.”

Korn have a fairly lengthy history with covers that includes Pink Floyd‘s “Another Brick In The Wall” trilogy and “Goodbye Cruel World“, Metallica‘s “One“, Cameo‘s “Word Up!“, War‘s “Low Rider“, Ice Cube‘s “Wicked” and more.
