On September 1 2017, Motörhead will release ‘Under Cöver’, a collection of their best covers and an unreleased version of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, recorded during the sessions for their final studio album ‘Bad Magic’ (2015).
About the Bowie cover, Phil Campbell said: “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, and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
Mikkey Dee talks about Lemmy on the Bowie cover: “He was very, very proud of it, not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
About the covers album, “We were happy with them at the time and we’re happy with them now!” says Campbell, whilst Dee adds, “We should remember that it’s about having some fun with songs that we all loved.”
