Korn are working on an album of cover versions that will include tracks by the Psychedelic Furs and Faith No More. The band, who are currently gearing up for their latest studio album on July 30, say they’ve already got several tracks recorded and are planning more.

Speaking to Billboard Jonathan Davis revealed: "We've already done, like, 'Love My Way' from Psychedelic Furs. We've done 'We Care a Lot' from Faith No More [and Nine Inch Nails'] 'Head Like a Hole.' Those are already recorded. We just gotta get in and do some more."

He added that guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer and bassist Reggie ‘Fieldy’ Avizu are continually adding to the wish list of covers for the album.

Songs on the list include Prince’s ‘Erotic City’, ‘Lookout Weekend’ by Debbie Deb and Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Diary Of A Madman’.

Korn have previously covered Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ for a MTV Unplugged album which came out in March.

I knew this ages ago. If it helps guys, Korn has done great covers in the past, and really try and make it their own sort of thing. I think they'll do well.

Korn covering Pink Floyd is blasphemy. I guess the idea might have looked good on paper, and that's why Gilmour/Waters/whoever owns the rights allowed it. But man, was it a horrible call...

Dream Theater and Queensryche doing Comfortably Numb together, now THAT was a decent cover.

I don't understand it when people say that so and so was their favorite band until they made whatever album. I mean, Machine Head is my favorite band, but I don't let Supercharger and The Burning Red ruin how much I love their other 4 amazing albums.
