Inglorious will release their first-ever covers album on 10 September via Frontiers Music Srl. Heroine sees the band covering female artists they admire, with sales set to support the charity Women’s Aid.
The first single and video sees that band cover Miley Cyrus’s Midnight Sky. “Miley has tons of great songs but is clearly a rocker to the core,” Nathan told MetalTalk. “We are all about the female empowerment in this modern classic, and it has one of those choruses you can’t help but sing along to.”
The album also features covers of songs by Whitney Houston, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, and Christina Aguilera as well as classics from Tina Turner, Heart, and Joan Jett and contemporary rock from Evanescence, Alanis Morissette, and Halestorm.
Originals are perfect
“First things first, we know it is impossible to make these songs better. The originals are perfect and the performances legendary, so acknowledging that we weren’t even going to come close to the magic of the originals took the pressure off, and we could just enjoy making this super fun album,” Nathan says.
“It’s about bowing to these incredible artists and, for me, saying thank you for sharing their gifts with the world. People assume that the singers I idolise are bluesy rock men, but they couldn’t be more wrong.
“Everyone of these artists has inspired me as a performer, writer, singer, or person. Whether it be the unbeatable voice of Whitney, the charisma of Tina, the honesty of Alanis, the intensity of Lzzy, or the control of Amy Lee.
“I love the fire all these women bring to their music and that’s what we wanted to say thanks for. Not only to these artists, but the awesome women in all of our lives who have loved us and continue to support us.
“With this in mind, we are donating a pound from every copy sold on our website to the fantastic charity Women’s Aid, who do amazing work supporting women and young girls.”
