As previously reported, CRADLE OF FILTH's cover of CLIFF RICHARD's 1976 hit "Devil Woman", featuring a special guest appearance by King Diamond, has been made available as a Real Audio stream at this location.

CRADLE OF FILTH's version of "Devil Woman" will be included on the group's new CD, "Nymphetamine: Special Edition", due on March 1 via Roadrunner Records. The collection will feature two all-new tracks ("Prey" and "Soft White Throat"), covers of OZZY OSBOURNE's "Mr. Crowley", BATHORY's "Bestial Lust" and "Devil Woman", two previously unreleased tracks, all-new and expanded artwork and the video for "Nymphetamine".

CRADLE OF FILTH recently parted ways with bassist Dave Pybus for personal reasons. A replacement bassist has yet to be announced.
