Danzig - "Some Velvet Morning" (ft. Cherie Currie) (Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra cover)
By Gregory AdamsHard rock dark lord Glenn Danzig still hasn't delivered too many details behind his long-in-the-works covers LP, but while it appears the release is still a ways off, he has revealed a new version of Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra's 1967 single "Some Velvet Morning."

Instead of embracing the cinematic, symphony strings-assisted approach of the original, Danzig recasts the track as a brooding, downcast and distorted monstrosity. His baritone is especially gloomy on the cut, and former Runaways singer Cherie Currie offers up a raspy blues growl in lieu of Sinatra's gossamer calls.

You can sample the questionable redo over here.

Danzig rolled through Toronto and Montreal this past weekend as part of his Danzig with Doyle tour, but has another Canadian gig lined up August 27 at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom.
