The Melvins, set to release a cover album, Everybody Loves Sausage, on April 30, have released the first listen, a rendition of Queen's "You're My Best Friend." The track features guest vocals from Caleb Benjamin of Tweak Bird and is streaming on Soundcloud now.
Each of the songs covered, in fact, feature a special guest. Other acts covered on the set include David Bowie ("Station to Station" with JG Thirlwell), the Kinks ("Attitude" with Clem Burke of Blondie), the Jam ("Art School" with Tom Hazelmyer) and Roxy Music ("In Every Dream Home a Heartache" with Jello Biafra and Kevin Rutmanis).
In a statement, Mackie Osborne said the band chose songs they personally dig to record:
"We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans."
