Danzig Working on Elvis Presley Covers EP
Glenn Danzig is in the studio working on an EP of Elvis Presley covers, Blabbermouth reports. A tentative early 2015 release is expected.

Danzig's cover version of the the classic Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra song "Some Velvet Morning," featuring a guest appearance by Cherie Currie (The Runaways), was made available for streaming last year. The track was supposed to appear on Danzig's covers album, which was also due to include Glenn's renditions of classic songs from Black Sabbath, Elvis Presley and ZZ Top, among others.

Glenn Danzig spent time in the studio in February with his guitarist/bandmate Tommy Victor (also of Prong) recording three new tracks for the next Danzig album. As of six months ago, Glenn had five new songs in various stages of completion.

The first new Danzig studio album in six years, "Deth Red Sabaoth," sold 11,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release landing at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart. 

"Deth Red Sabaoth" was released on June 22, 2010 via Evilive/The End Records. Produced by Glenn, the CD was recorded in Los Angeles over the course of 2009.
