Five Finger Death Punch shared a recent video on its YouTube channel and presented the new version of 22-years-old song Blue On Black. The song featuring Queen guitarist Brian May. You can listen to the song below.
The band also made a statement about the song. Here is what they said:
“These brave men and women leave their homes every morning not knowing if they’ll ever see their families again. Yet they make a conscious choice to do so for the greater good, to protect all of us.”
Kenny Wayne commented:
“When Five Finger Death Punch approached me about teaming up with them to do a special version of ‘Blue on Black,’ I was thrilled to do it. When they told me Brantley Gilbert and Brian May were also going to be part of it, I was honored.
This is a powerful collaboration of rock, country and blues artists and a true testament to the commonalities these musical styles share, and I think the fans will appreciate and enjoy it as much as we do.”
Gilbert made a comment:
“Blue on Black is a song my band and I have covered off and on for years… songs are certified timeless when you can come back to them. It’s always a staple each night and one of my favorite songs to perform.
When the opportunity came up to sing on Five Finger’s version, with both Kenny Wayne and Brian May of Queen, I jumped at the chance… Who wouldn’t?! It incorporates so many different musical perspectives, but our collaboration just works brilliantly.”
