KoRn recently shared a cryptic teaser with an image of scrambled letters on a signboard. While some suggested it was the lyrics to “Twist,” others suspected we would soon hear the group covering The Charlie Daniels Band classic “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.” It turns out, the latter was correct. Today (28th), the band has unveiled the cover of the classic track, featuring YelaWolf exclusively via Bandcamp. You can purchase the single for $2. All proceeds will be donated to Awakening Youth, a nonprofit organization devoted to young people faced with the loss of a parent due to divorce, addiction, death, being surrendered for adoption, or other reasons.
Frontman Jonathan Davis comments:
“I’ve always said it, but country music is some of the darkest ever. 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.”
