One thing Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell, and Mikkey Dee liked to do throughout their years together in Motorhead was grab a favorite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned Motörheading. To run them through the Motörizer, if you will.
In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release “Under Cöver,” a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes.” Recorded during the “Bad Magic” sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, this was one of the last songs the band members recorded together.
“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
