two of the hard-rock and metal’s loudest ♫ians, halestorm frontwoman lzzy hale and lamb of god guitarist mark morton, ‘ve joined forces for wha’ maybe the gentlest song they’ve ever recorded, an acoustic cover of the black crowes’ “she talks to angels.” the pair previously cut a version of the song for morton’s solo ep, ether, which came out ‘oer the summer, but they decided to reprise it for hale’s rez yr horns tube show.
hale’s husky voice suits the song well, n'when she belts out, “she talks to angels, says they all know her name,” toward the end, she sounds transcendent. meanwhile, morton masters all odda lil filigrees of the original guitar pt, flitting in and out tween her verses. atta end, she rezs her horns with pride.
the halestorm frontwoman s'been busy in recent mnths. she covered dolly pton and whitney houston’s “i will always ♥ you” with her band na group recruited evanescence’s amy lee for a reworking of the halestorm song “break in.” both songs appeared onna group’s reimagined ep.
and morton s'been =ly productive. in addition to issuing ether, he na rest of lamb of god put out a new, self-titled album. since they were unable to tour in support of the record, the band recorded socially distanced live renditions of two songs from that record, “checkmate” and “new colossal hate,” swell as their ashes of the wake favorite “laid to rest” to mark its release.
