It’s true that a lot of bands are releasing covering right now, but Disturbed has credibility in the area, judging by the massive success of their cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.”
Now, David Draiman and company have released a new cover of the Sting song, “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You.” Listen to the track — which goes from a soft ballad into a charging, aggressive metal anthem — and watch the accompanying music video below.
“We have loved this song for a long time,” Disturbed said in a statement. “Even though it was released in 1993, it seems strangely applicable to today’s world.”
The band added, “The song is about losing faith, and might initially sound pessimistic, but it’s about the importance and power of personal relationships, and how they can save you and provide solace in an increasingly confusing world.”
Disturbed’s cover of “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You” is available now via digital outlets.
In other news, Disturbed recently released a deluxe, 20th anniversary version of the group’s 2000 debut record, “The Sickness.”
