KORN Working On Covers Album

Gary Graff of Billboard.com reports that KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told reporters yesterday (July 18) the band has started work on what will likely turn into a full set of cover songs in the future.

"We've already done, like, 'Love My Way' from PSYCHEDELIC FURS," said Davis. "We've done 'We Care a Lot' from FAITH NO MORE [and NINE INCH NAILS'] 'Head Like a Hole'. Those are already recorded. We just gotta get in and do some more."

Davis said that he, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and bassist Reggie "Fieldy" Avizu "keep writing down covers" they'd like to record. Davis' current wish list includes PRINCE's "Erotic City", OZZY OSBOURNE's "Diary of a Madman" and DEBBIE DEB's "Lookout Weekend" as done by LISA LISA & CULT JAM. The group previously covered RADIOHEAD's "Creep" for its "MTV Unplugged" album that came out in March.

There's no word yet if KORN's version of MORBID ANGEL's "God of Emptiness", recorded during the sessions for their 1999 CD, "Issues", will appear on the forthcoming covers set.
