Former THE RUNAWAYS
vocalist Cherie Currie
has revealed via her Facebook page
that she spent time in the studio last week with Glenn Danzig
recording a duet for his new album, due out this fall. "Great guy," she wrote.Danzig
is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on the as-yet-untitled covers record.
A song from the CD, "Devil's Angels"
, was recently premiered the former SAMHAIN
frontman's official web site
. It was originaly the theme song for the late '60s biker film of the same title.
: "I've wanted to record this song since 1979 and this is exactly the same arrangement I had for it back then, so it pretty much sounds like that late '70s style of mine. I'm really happy with the way it turned out; it actually came out much better than I had hoped it would. We're going to be playing it live on these upcoming shows."
In a 2011 interview, Danzig stated about his upcoming collection of covers, "It's [got] lots of different stuff [on it]. Of course there's an Elvis
] song on there, there's a BLACK SABBATH
cover… Then I took some old biker-movie theme songs and made them all old punk-sounding or whatever… Just fucking around, really — just having a good time taking songs and giving them a different life or a different dimension. I just do what I feel like doing, as long as I don't just cover it, because that's boring to me. I wanna take it and change it and give it some other kind of thing. Otherwise just leave it alone."
