WARRIOR SOUL release video for cover of Alice Cooper song ‘Elected’

WARRIOR SOUL have released a music video for Alice Cooper’s ‘Elected‘, the song taken from the forthcoming covers album ‘Cocaine And Other Good Stuff‘, which will be out on November 13th, 2020 via Livewire/Cargo Records UK. 
 
Watch the video for ‘Elected’ below.

The album is a compilation of songs that everyone in the band, both current and previous members, had some input choosing.

Kory Clarke – “We wanted to make a record that was not about all the crap we are all living in, as it seems like a well worn path for . So, I had to think out of the box“.

The album was recorded in (Edinburgh – Scotland, Newcastle – England, Copenhagen – Denmark, L.A. – USA, NYC- USA, Chicago – USA, Detroit – USA, Sheffield – UK, Costa Blanca – Torrevieja – Spain) in home studios.

Tracklist:
1. Good Times Roll (Ocasek)
2. Cocaine (Cale)
3. Crosstown Traffic (Hendrix)
4. Cold Gin (Frehley)
5. D.O.A. (Van Halen, Van Halen, Anthony, Roth)
6. Elected (Cooper, Buxton, Bruce, Dunaway, Smith)
7. Outlaw (Kilmister, Campbell, Dee)
8. Firehouse (Stanley)
9. Get Down Tonight (Casey, Finch)
10. We’re An American Band (Brewer)
11. Living After Midnight (Halford, Downing, Tipton)

The idea for a covers album started when mainman Kory Clarke  was contacted by legendary rock photographer, Alex Ruffini’s brother, enquiring if Warrior Soul would record a cover of a KISS song, which was Alex Ruffini’s favourite band, for a tribute in aid of Cancer Research. Warrior Soul recorded ‘Cold Gin‘. Once the band started recording, it sounded really positive and they decided to assemble a complete record of covers ranging from Motörhead to KC and the Sunshine Band.

Kory Clarke – “I contacted many of the musicians who have played with Warrior Soul recently and asked if they wanted to be part of it – everyone was very much up for it and ready to go. We called John Dryland at Livewire/Cargo Records, and he said ‘of course, go for it‘, the irony of recording ‘Good Times Roll’ during a global pandemic really works as you can hear the sneer of sarcasm right through every chorus!

Warrior Soul are known for recording some electrifying covers previously including songs by Joy DivisionIggy Pop and David BowieKory Clarke has performed on several compilation and tribute albums singing other acts songs but this is the first complete album of its kind from Warrior Soul.
