Korn have covered “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” with a little help from the Alabama rapper Yelawolf.
All proceeds of the cover, which was released exclusively on Korn’s brand-new Bandcamp page, will benefit Awakening Youth, a non-profit organization that works to empower young people who have lost connection with a parent due to events ranging from addiction and divorce to death. It was also released in tribute to its songwriter, Charlie Daniels, who died earlier this month. The country legend had died at the age of 83 from a hemorrhagic stroke.
“Charlie left a musical legacy that goes beyond just one genre,” Korn wrote in a statement. “We want to honor his talent and influence with our own rendition of his song… Special thanks to our boy Yelawolf for jumping on the track with us.”
This is Korn’s first release in a while: The band last put out an acoustic version of “Can You Hear Me,” a track from their 2019 album The Nothing. Yelawolf, on the other hand, released the album Ghetto Cowboy last year.
