Priests – “Mother” (Danzig Cover)

A couple months ago, Priests released their very good sophomore album, The Seduction Of Kansas. Today, they’re releasing something else very good: a cover of Danzig’s heavy metal hit “Mother,” which they recreate with a disco sheen.

“This whole album (Danzig) is actually pretty sexy, something it doesn’t get enough credit for. We thought we’d tease this out a little more in our cover by re-imagining it with a ‘Let’s Dance’ era Nile-Rogers-producing-Bowie kind of glamor,” the band said in a statement. “Plus, what better way to subvert expectations of a Danzig song than by sprinkling it with a little disco panache? We assume this cover won’t be for everybody, but that’s the whole point of committing to creative decisions now, isn’t it?”

The cover is only available if you have Amazon Music. If ya do, it’s all yours below.
