Depp Takes Vocal Lead
For their new album, Johnny Depp is taking over the lead vocals to cover David Bowie’s popular song Heroes.
The band also released a promo video in which Johnny Depp covers David Bowie’s Heroes. It is entirely black and white. Moreover, the video was filmed at Berlin’s Hansa Studios, the exact studio where the legendary singer David Bowie recorded the original song in 1977.
The band mostly covers songs from artists who have passed away to honor their memory. However, they have also released a few original songs. They released “The Boogieman Surprise” in May and “Who’s Laughing Now” in April.
Upcoming Album: Rise
Regarding their new album Rise, Cooper also told NME, “It’s not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.”
Furthermore, other songs on their album will include covers of People Who Died by Jim Carroll Band’s and You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory by Johnny Thunder.
