Puddle of Mudd have been working on their follow-up to 2009′s Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love Hate, but along the way they decided that rather than put out a new record, they wanted to focus on an album of covers. The set, called re:(disc)overed, will be hitting stores August 2.
“We chose a lot of things that were challenging,” guitarist Paul Phillips told Billboard about re:(disc)overed. “People hear Puddle’s gonna do a covers album and they think it’ll be Nirvana and the Ramones and Metallica and stuff like that. And that’s something we wanted to do, but we wanted to stretch our legs, and it was a very challenging thing to have songs that have piano and these big, crazy arrangements and stuff.”
The truth is re:(disc)overed largely focuses on ’70s tracks, with the most recent song being 1981′s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” And as you can tell from the track list below, Puddle stayed with the tried-and-true, sticking mostly to huge hits from established artists. According to Phillips, the band opted to stay pretty faithful to the originals: “They’re not slavish copies; these songs do have a Puddle of Mudd flavor to them, but we didn’t go in and change parts just to make it sound more like us.” So you can probably expect these covers to have a distinct grunge edge to them.
After digging into the past for this covers album, though, the band feel pretty sure they’re going to be ready to get to work on a proper follow-up to Volume 4. “I think it brought everybody’s playing up to another level…and maybe a platform for us to experiment a bit more on the next record and try some different things,” says Phillips about re:(disc)overed. “This is going to be a real important record for us and we really want to try to take it to the next level and surprise people [with the next record].”
Only time will tell.
