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.
