HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale has told Radio.com that she has been performing intimate cover versions of songs by some of her favorite pop divas during the band's recent concerts. "I started playing Adele's 'Someone Like You', amongst other things, in the middle of our set," she said (see video below). "We have a small section where we'll roll out my piano and I'll do our song 'Dear Daughter', and then I'll throw in some other things; for a while, it was Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always You'."
She continued: "It's fun to throw those things out there, because I think that no matter what walk of life you come from, or even the fact that it's at a rock show, we can all agree that Adele's awesome, and so is Whitney Houston. And I love looking at, like, the poster child for metal and masculinity staring at me in the front row and just seeing them sing every word."
HALESTORM will release its fourth album, "Vicious", on July 27 via Atlantic. Recorded last year at Nashville, Tennesse's Rock Falcon recording studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz, the disc is available for pre-order at all DSPs and streaming services.
Deluxe album packages are available for pre-order exclusively at the band's official webstore, including the new album on standard vinyl, plus a limited-edition opaque purple colored double vinyl with enhanced cover art and bonus tracks, limited to 1500 units worldwide. Also exclusively available at the webstore are a limited edition t-shirt, dog tag necklace, autographed poster, and a free album cover magnet with physical album purchase while supplies last.
Raskulinecz is an acclaimed producer who has previously worked with RUSH, KORN, ALICE IN CHAINS and DEFTONES, in addition to having produced HALESTORM's third covers EP, "ReAniMate 3.0: The CoVeRs eP", which came out in January 2017.
