Das UK Hard Rock Outfit INGLORIOUS, hat bereits für September den Nachfolger ihres Anfang des Jahres erschienenen Longplayers We Will Ride” terminiert. Und zwar ein Coveralbum namens “Heroine”, auf dem die Fünf fast ausschließlich Popsongs weiblicher Artists covern. Von Whitney Houston bis Evanescence. Dazu spendet die Band je ein Pfund von jeder verkauften Einheit an eine Charity-Organisation, die sich um Frauen und Mädchen kümmert. Nach Miley Cyrus ist jetzt der Heart Klassiker ’Barracuda’ an der Reihe.
Sänger Nathan James:
“First things first, we know it is impossible to make these songs better, the originals are perfect and the performances legendary, so acknowledging that we weren’t even gonna come close to the magic of the originals took the pressure off and we could just enjoy making this super fun album. It’s about bowing to these incredible artists and, for me personally, saying thank you for sharing their gifts with the world. People assume that the singers I idolise are bluesy rock men, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Everyone of these artists has inspired me as a performer, writer, singer, or person. Whether it be the unbeatable voice of Whitney, the charisma of Tina, the honesty of Alanis, the intensity of Lzzy, or the control of Amy Lee. I love the fire all these women bring to their music and that’s what we wanted to say thanks for. Not only to these artists, but the awesome women in all of our lives who have loved us and continue to support us. With this in mind we are donating a pound from every copy sold on our webstore to the fantastic charity Women’s Aid (https://www.womensaid.org.uk/), who do amazing work supporting women and young girls.”
