Halestorm Unleash Rocking Cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’
Will the song of the summer become the song of the fall, as well? If Halestorm have anything to say about it, that may very well be the case. Even for hard rock and metal fans, it’s been hard to escape hearing Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ at least a few times and now Halestorm has covered the track for their ‘ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP,’ which is due Oct. 15.
The band’s decidedly heavier take on the pop song has now surfaced and can be heard in the player below. The track is just one of six new covers from the band that appear on the EP, with the group also taking on tracks from Judas Priest (‘Dissident Aggressor’), AC/DC (‘Shoot to Thrill’), Pat Benatar (‘Hell Is for Children’), Fleetwood Mac (‘Gold Dust Woman’) and Marilyn Manson (’1996′).
“Like our first ‘ReAniMate’ EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves,” explained Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ‘ReAniMate: 2.0’ as we did!”
Halestorm have already worked several cover songs into shows this past year and there’s the possibility that more will follow on their tour this fall.
