Rapper Willie D To Cover XTC

Gangsta rapper and former Geto Boy Willie D has updated the XTC tune "Dear God" -- from the British post-new-wave band's 1986 disc Skylarking -- for his currently untitled next album, set for release later this year. XTC fans, in the meantime, can sate themselves with new material when that band releases its latest LP, Apple Venus Volume 1, Feb. 23.
