Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine and Twiztid’s Madrox have teamed up for their intense cover of Duran Duran’s cover of “Hungry Like the Wolf.”
Speaking about the song with AltPress, Urine says:
“MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE AND TWIZTID CAME UP IN THIS BUSINESS AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME 20 YEARS AGO, SO YOU KNOW THIS COLLABORATION HAD TO HAPPEN,” he wrote. “IT WAS THE PROPHECY, YO LIKE FUCKING DUNE AND SHIT. JAMIE AND HIS TEAM REACHED OUT TO ME ABOUT GUESTING VOCALS ON THIS COVER, AND I WAS LIKE, ‘YEAH, I LOVE DURAN DURAN. PLUS, I AM THE PREMIER 1980S GUEST VOCALIST. I JUST DID ‘ROCK ME AMADEUS’ WITH FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY AND ‘WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES’ AND ‘WUTHERING HEIGHTS’ FOR MY OWN PROJECT EURINGER.
“BUT I SAID, ‘YOU HAVE TO LET ME ADD SOME PRODUCTION TO IT BECAUSE I LOVE DOING THAT TYPE OF STUFF.’ THEY WERE LIKE, ‘HELL, YEAH,’ AND I WENT TO TOWN AND HAD A BLAST WITH VOCALS, PRODUCTION AND MIXING. I AM A HUGE DURAN DURAN FAN, HAVING COVERED ‘GIRLS ON FILM’ WITH MSI. DURAN DURAN HAVE SO MANY GOOD GODDAMN SONGS. HOW CAN YOU COVER JUST ONE?”
Check out the lyric video below.
The cover will be available as a limited-edition seven-inch single February 7th, 2020.
