As one of the most influential jazz and pop singers of his time, it should come as no surprise that the multi-award winning Frank Sinatra is being honoured with the upcoming release of yet another tribute album. But what may come as a shock is that the album will not consist of the faithful recreations of Sinatra's that we're used to, but will rather contain twelve of his greatest hits made into metal covers.
The record, which is aptly named SIN-atra (heh), will feature some of metal's most renowned and respected vocalists including those from groups like Anthrax, Twisted Sister, and Judas Priest. The tribute will be made available on March 28th, and the track listing is as follows:
01. New York, New York (Devin Townsend) 02. I've Got You Under My Skin (Glenn Hughes, Deep Purple) 03. Summerwind (Geoff Tate, Queensrche) 04. It Was A Very Good Year (Dee Snider, Twisted Sister) 05. Witchcraft (Tim Ripper Owens, Judas Priest) 06. Fly Me To The Moon (Robin Zander, Cheap Trick) 07. The Lady Is A Tramp (Eric Martin, Mr Big) 08. I've Got The World On A String (Dug Pinnick, King's X) 09. Love And Marriage (Elias Soriano, Nonpoint) 10. Strangers In The Night (Joey Belladonna, Anthrax) 11. High Hopes (Franky Perez, Scars On Boradway) 12. That's Life (Jani Lane, Warrant)
While we are not sure if Ol' Blue Eyes would appreciate some of his best work being made into metal songs, it will definitely be interesting to hear how the artists involved will interpret his music and to see how it sounds when it's heavy.
