In anticipation for their upcoming release Words of the Prophets, a tribute to the band’s fellow Canadian influences, Kobra and the Lotus has released a music video for their cover of Alannah Myles’ “Black Velvet.” Words will be released worldwide on August 28th via Titan Music, but this song is available right now on iTunes.
Frontwoman Kobra Paige does a fitting tribute to the 90s classic and karaoke anthem, whilst the entire outfit gives the whole track a fresh interpretation without sacrificing the integrity of the song.

Lay it on the Line (Triumph)
Sign of the Gypsy Queen (April Wine)
Black Velvet (Alannah Myles)
