Canadian rockers NICKELBACK are currently in the studio recording their ninth studio album, tentatively due in early 2017 via Republic Records.
While NICKELBACK was in the studio laying down tracks for the follow-up to 2014's "No Fixed Address", they decided to have some fun and play one of their favorite songs, Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry". Instead of letting the impromptu recording go to waste, they wanted to share it with their fans. Take a listen to their rendition on Spotify.
Released in 1982, the original version of "Dirty Laundry" was written and produced by Henley and Danny Kortchmar.
NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that making each new record different is what keeps things interesting for NICKELBACK. "When we get in the studio to take on the daunting task of making a NICKELBACK record, all the band members have such diverse tastes in music that it's a lot about keeping us happy," he said. "We don't want to get onstage and play the same kind of music for two hours. We like to make sure that everybody in the band is happy and that seems to be keeping the fans happy."
In June 2015, NICKELBACK canceled the majority of its tour dates in support of the band's eighth album, "No Fixed Address", so that Kroeger could recover from surgery to remove a cyst on his vocal cords.
NICKELBACK filed a $13 million insurance claim with Lloyd's of London after scrapping the tour. But Lloyd's sued to cancel the singer's insurance, alleging that Kroeger already had the throat condition and failed to disclose it before taking out the policy.
Earlier this year, NICKELBACK countersued Lloyd's, claiming that the firm is making false allegations about the band so that it doesn't have to pay out the claim.
"No Fixed Address" debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 album chart in November 2014.
