JANE'S ADDICTION's Cover Of 'Sympathy For The Devil' To Appear On 'Songs Of Anarchy: Vol. 2'

Alternative rock pioneers JANE'S ADDICTION recently recorded a cover version of THE ROLLING STONES classic "Sympathy For The Devil" for the second album of music from FX's hit drama "Sons Of Anarchy", entitled "Songs Of Anarchy: Vol. 2" and scheduled for release on November 19.

"When JANE'S ADDICTION said they were into the idea of doing 'Sympathy For The Devil' for the show, we were completely blown away," said "Sons Of Anarchy" music composer Bob Thiele. "This was made all the more sweet because theirs was the first and only door we knocked on. JANE'S ADDICTION is one of the few post-'60s/'70s iconic bands that resonates with our show's mythology. They have typified rebellion from their very beginnings. It seemed a natural fit between a band and a song with so many layers of meaning to the 'Sons Of Anarchy' narrative. I can proudly say that the end product speaks for itself. Working with them, as a band and as individuals, was an incredibly satisfying experience."

JANE'S ADDICTION originally issued a live version of "Sympathy For The Devil" in 1987 on their self-titled album.

As previously reported, JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro will show off his acting skills in the last two episodes of the show's current season. Navarro's character will be a member of the Byz-Lats gang, affiliated with NeroPadilla, the "companionator" played by actor Jimmy Smits.

JANE'S ADDICTION's latest album, "The Great Escape Artist", came out in September 2011.
