Motorhead to Release Compilation of Their Covers

by VVN Music

Along with great original rock, Motorhead also occasionally recorded cover versions of some of their favorite songs.

Some of those covers are being assembled in the new compilation Under Cover, out in September,  which includes ten previously released tracks along with a cover of the David Bowie song Heroes.

Heroes was one of the last songs that the band recorded together before Lemmy Kilmister's death from cancer at the age of 70. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions, Phil Campbell says “It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

Mikkey Dee added "He was very, very proud of it, not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!"
