NEW MUSIC: DAUGHTRY | HUNGRY STRIKE (FEATURING LAJON WITHERSPOON)
Daughtry teamed up with Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon to pay tribute to Chris Cornell with a special cover rendition of the Temple Of The Dog hit "Hunger Strike." This is one of those songs most musicians are scared to cover because the original is pretty much perfect, but in a bold and unexpected move, Daughtry and Sevendust singer Lajon Witherspoon took it on. Daughtry had this to say, "Chris Cornell is one of the defining voices that grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me want to be a rock singer. 'Hunger Strike' is one of, if not the most iconic rock duets of our generation. "Hunger Strike" comes after the recent release of their single "Heavy Is The Crown," the first single from Daughtry in 2021. With a new video expected to unveil itself for the single soon, the band recently provided its broadcast debut with a performance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show Daughtry's fifth full-length album, "Cage To Rattle," was released in 2018 via 19 Recordings/RCA. The disc was produced by Jacquire King (Kings Of Leons, Tom Waits, Norah Jones).
