Glenn Danzig has loved Elvis Presley for a long time, and he’s been working on an album of Elvis covers for nearly as long. Now, the project is finally coming to fruition; Danzig Sings Elvis is coming out next week; he’s planning some intimate, Vegas-style all-Elvis concerts later this year; and today, he’s sharing its first song.
That first song is Elvis’ 1958 hit “One Night.” “It’s a great song,” Danzig tells Rolling Stone, where the track premiered, in a new interview. “There’s a lot of different versions of it that I did while I was in the studio with multiple vocal takes. I did some a little softer, some a little harder. Some in between. The one I decided on is the one I like the best.”
Listen to Danzig’s “One Night” and compare it to the original below.
Danzig Sings Elvis is out 4/17.
