Motörhead will be participating on Record Store Day with the release of a 7” picture disc of their runaway hit cover version of David Bowie’s “Heroes.” On April 21st, this special edition vinyl arrives, and it will have fresh artwork including a new take on the classic war-pig. The disc’s flip-side will feature the Wacken Family Choir Mix recording of “Heroes,” which will have previously unheard emotional audio of the crowd at 2017’s Wacken Festival singing along to the single as it was being officially launched via the festival PA.
Guitarist Phil Campbell commented:
“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming from it out of us.”
Drummer Mikkey Dee expressed:
“Lemmy was very, very proud of it, not only because it turned out so well, but because it was fun!”
