Korn, the band, has recently shared a cover of late Charlie Daniels’ ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’. The song was originally released in 1979 by the Charlie Daniels Band.
The new version is available on the band’s Bandcamp page. People can listen and purchase the track there. All earnings will go to the non-profit organisation Awakening Youth.
In a statement on the Bandcamp page, Korn wrote, “We’re very excited to bring you our cover of the late, great Charlie Daniels’ infamous track, ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’.”
Korn continued, “Charlie left a musical legacy that goes beyond just one genre, and we want to honor his talent and influence with our own rendition of his song.”
Singer and songwriter, Charlie Daniels, died on 6 July 2020. He had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.
‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ has seen many covers by various artists. The list includes Primus, Blues Traveler, and more.
2015 album, ‘Love Story’ rapper, Yelawolf, features on the cover of the group.
A glimpse of the latest cover was shared by Korn last week. The band took to social media and released a cryptic photo along with an anagram of ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ to tease fans and create curiosity.
The band’s latest album, ‘The Nothing’, was released in September 2019. Its first single was titled ‘You’ll Never Find Me’. A new song from The ‘Nothing’ was released in August 2019, which was called ‘Cold.’
