Puddle of Mudd's version of The Rolling Stones classic "Gimme Shelter" has been released as their first single from their forthcoming album re:(disc)overed. The track is available on iTunes today.
re:(disc)overed lands on August 30th. For this release, Puddle of Mudd dig deep down and pull up their roots and look to their own past for the songs that turned them on to becoming musicians in the first place.
re:(disc)overed includes such classics as AC/DC's "TNT," Steve Miller's "The Joker," Elton John's "Rocket Man," the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (which Puddle Of Mudd recorded with BC Jean), Neil Young's "Old Man," and of course the first single, "Gimmie Shelter." The album finds Puddle Of Mudd tackling classic rock songs as only they know how. Rawr! Bring it, Mudd bathers!
"Our goal in interpreting these songs was to pay more tribute rather than reinvent," the band said. "These are all classics that are perfect in every sense, so who are we to mess with that? We just wanted to represent them in their true form and add a little of our sound to them. We cut everything with very few takes and tried to keep it very live like those old seventies records. We didn't want to Pro Tool the hell out of it."
