Clan Of Xymox to release Kindred Spirits ft covers of New Order, The Cure, Depeche Mode + more

Xymox - Kindred SpiritsCover songs are always an interesting topic to debate. Has a song been improved, remade, or just re-recored verbatim? When is too soon to cover a new song? What classics have been covered to death? Clan of Xymox is a band who has stood the test of time and released several decades of albums that (for the most part) have kept their fans devoted to them. Their latest album due out on October 5, 2012, should get the cover song debates going among those fans, as it is an album of 11 cover songs.

“Kindred Spirits” was entirely played, sung and recorded by Leipzig based Ronny Moorings. It covers some already highly covered tracks such as Heroes by David Bowie which was released as a single on May 18th – in two different versions, a slower industrial version as well as a pop version. Other common covers included are Radiohead’s Creep and New Order’s Blue Monday. The album also offers some unique explorations of Nine Inch Nail’s – Something I Can Never Have, Joy Divisions’ Decades and Red Light by Siouxsie and the Banshees. The complete track listing:

  1. Venus (Shocking Blue)
  2. Alice (The Sisters of Mercy)
  3. Is Vic There? (Department S)
  4. A Forest (The Cure)
  5. Something I Can Never Have (Nine Inch Nails)
  6. Red Light (Siouxsie and the Banshees)
  7. Decades (Joy Division)
  8. Heroes (David Bowie)
  9. A Question of Time (Depeche Mode)
  10. Creep (Radiohead)
  11. Blue Monday (New Order)
