VELVET REVOLVER has recorded cover versions of TALKING HEADS' "Psycho Killer" and ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA's "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" during the sessions for the group's sophomore album, "Libertad". It is not presently clear where the cover songs will end up, but drummer Matt Sorum reportedly said he hopes at least one of them makes the new CD because "they're both bitchin'."
In other news, VELVET REVOLVER has finished recording "Libertad" with producer Brendan O'Brien. "The last day in the studio was yesterday ....sniff.... sniff.... and now all that's left to do is finish mixing," guitarist Dave Kushner wrote on his web site. "I can't even express to u people how f%@$n' awesome it sounds!!!!! All the tracking is done. Just some last-minute vocals and finish mixing. It's gonna be a good one!"
