Korn have shared a hard-rock cover of Charlie Daniels‘ “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” in collaboration with YelaWolf.
Korn recorded their version of Charlie Daniels’ signature song during the creation of the band’s album, The Nothing, last year.
They decided to release it now in honor of the southern rock, country, and bluegrass musician, who died earlier this month.
“I’ve always said it, but country music is some of the darkest ever,” Korn frontman Jonathan Davis said in a statement. “Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, and, of course, Charlie Daniels all turned pain into some really powerful music that sounded alive.”
“‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ is a classic story, and we wanted to release it now to help others in need,” he added.
“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” can be downloaded for $2 on the band’s Bandcamp page. All proceeds from the track will go to “Awakening Youth,” a non-profit for youth.
Best known for his number-one country hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” Daniels was active as a singer and musician from the 1950s.
He died on July 6 at the age of 83.
