DevilDriver has released a lyric video for the band's cover of AWOLNATION 's "Sail." The video features still images of DevilDriver on stage, layered onto black, churning waves, with songs lyrics displayed along with the song.
Though DevilDriver has a history of covering songs by other artists, this is the first time the members have paid homage to a current hit. Singer Dez Fafara tells Blabbermouth.net that the song spoke to him on many levels.
"I was in the car one day and [my teenage sons] were playing the song and I absolutely connected with the lyrics, 'Blame it on my ADD'," said Fafara. "I mean, I suffered from attention deficit my whole life. And the song has the word 'sail' in it and I've been on tour for 20 years, so I liked it."
AWOLNATION's original version of "Sail" has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for 77 weeks, making it the second-longest running song of all time, right after Imagine Dragons ' "Radioactive,' which is in its 78th week on the Hot 100.
DevilDriver's cover of "Sail" is on the band's latest album, Winter Kills , released last August.
