Korn's Jonathan Davis Sings On Deadsy Track

Korn vocalist contributes to upcoming Commencement.

Taking a break from work on Korn's fifth album, singer Jonathan Davis sang on a track slated for Deadsy's second CD. Davis recorded his vocal part for the song, tentatively titled "Key to Gramercy Park," at A&M Studios in Los Angeles on July 22, according to his publicist.

The new album from Deadsy — singer P. Exeter Blue I (a.k.a. Elijah Blue, son of Cher and Gregg Allman), synth player Dr. Nner (Renn Hawkey), bassist The Beast Craig (Craig Riker), drummer Alec Püre (Alec Puro) and guitarist Carlton Megalodon — is due early next year on Korn's Elementree imprint in association with DreamWorks, according to a DreamWorks spokesperson.

A 1999 version of the album, called Commencement, was left in limbo when Sire Records' distribution deal with Warner Bros. dissolved and the band was dropped from the label. The neo-Goth rockers are re-recording and retooling a few tracks for the updated version with co-producers Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach, Drowning Pool) and Josh Abraham (Limp Bizkit, Crazy Town), according to their publicist.

This isn't the first Davis-Deadsy collaboration — the Korn frontman also lent his pipes to "Sleepy Hollow" on Deadsy's self-titled debut (1997).

Korn, meanwhile, continue to work with producer Michael Beinhorn on more disturbing dirges for their follow-up to 1999's Issues.
