Friday marked the release of MOTÖRHEAD‘s new covers compilation album, Under Cöver – a collection of some of the band’s best covers ultimately celebrating a love of interpreting the music of fellow legends. October 13, 2017 will see the release of the physical album formats in North America, including 1CD (Digi pack) and 1x 180 grams Black Vinyl in gatefold.
Right now, MOTÖRHEAD is also running a “Show Us Your Heroes” social media contest! Fans can upload photos of their personal heroes (musical, or otherwise), and tag #Motorheadheroes on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The winner (best entry) will win a special MOTÖRHEAD 40th Anniversary prize pack!
Watch MOTÖRHEAD‘s music video for their cover of David Bowie‘s timeless classic “Heroes” here: https://youtu.be/J06yQb4lbPk The music video features massive performance footage and heartwarming behind the scenes images and video of the band. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, “Heroes” was one of the last songs MOTÖRHEAD recorded together.
To that ethic, the rest of the album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging rock ‘n’ roll takes on the likes of “God Save The Queen” (Sex Pistols), “Cat Scratch Fever” (Ted Nugent), “Rockaway Beach,” (The Ramones), Breaking The Law” (Judas Priest) and “Whiplash” (Metallica) which earned the band a Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance.
