American rock group Hollywood Vampires covers David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ with Johnny Depp on the main vocals, Alice Cooper on backing vocals, and Joe Perry on guitar. The group recorded the cover at Hans Studios in Berlin which is the same place Bowie recorded his famous hit in 1977, right near his European home, it wasn’t the largest space for recording, but they made do with the small space they had. The ‘Heroes’ cover is part of their new album ‘Rise’ which was released on June 21. The music video was shot in black and white with live footage from their tour in Europe last year.
The latest album includes covers from David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory’ by Johnny Thunder, and ‘People Who Died’ by Jim Carroll Band, alongside originals. Alice Cooper stated that the new album will be different from previous Hollywood Vampires albums and that the different influences of each member that “the sound of this album is very cool”. Alice will be touring the United Kingdom for his Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back arena tour.
