DAVID HASSELHOFF covers The Jesus & Mary Chain’s 'Head On' - Listen Now

Iconic star of the screen and stage and multi-platinum selling singer David Hasselhoff will be releasing his new album Open Your Eyes on September 27. The album is a new peak in an already illustrious career finding The Hoff joined by a host of equally legendary guest musicians including such talents as film composer Tyler Bates, producer Todd Rundgren, country singer Charlie Daniels, and The Stooges’ guitarist James Williamson who joined Hasselhoff on the album’s first single, the titular track “Open Your Eyes!”

Now, Hasselhoff is ready to release his next single, this time backed by superstar guitarist Elliot Easton of The Cars on a superb cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s neo-psych stunner “Head On.” The song was a major hit for the Reid brothers back in 1989 and Easton and Hasselhoff’s version remain true to the song’s overall structure while adding a bit more swagger courtesy of Hasselhoff’s excellent vocal performance and Easton’s precise playing. Easton’s extraordinary skill as a guitarist helped propel his band The Cars into last year’s induction class to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Sadly, the music world mourned the passing of Cars’ frontman Ric Ocasek earlier this month.
