Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan & Soulsavers cover Cat Power’s ‘Metal Heart’

Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan & Soul Savers have shared a cover of Cat Power’s “Metal Heart.”

The track comes from their recently announced covers album, Imposter, which is out November 12th via Columbia Records. “Metal Heart” originally comes from Cat Power’s 1998 album, Moon Pix.

Dave Gahan & Soul Savers’ rendition of “Metal Heart” is gloomy and slow. Gahan’s vocals truly lead the tune, atop a stripped back atmospheric guitar line. As the track progresses, a punchy percussion line kicks in, driving the track forward.

According to a press release, Imposter reinterprets 12 songs “from across genres and time periods” as opposed to being a covers album.

In addition to their “Metal Heart” cover, they’ll be covering tracks from PJ Harvey, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and more on this new album. The pair reinterprete Young’s “A Man Needs a Maid,” PJ Harvey’s “The Desperate Kingdom of Love,” and more.
