Glenn Danzig Says His “Danzig Sings Elvis” Release Will Now Be A Full Album

During a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie, Glenn Danzig offered an update on his long-awaited Elvis Presley covers release. The effort was originally supposed to be an EP, but the frontman said it will now be a full album and that he is hoping to release it in 2019.

Danzig said the following:

“I’m still looking to put out the Danzig sings Elvis record in 2019, maybe do a few intimate shows here and there for it. But, I don’t know, we’ll see.

If the record’s not out, I’m not going to do [the shows where I sing nothing but Elvis covers]. It depends on my schedule and if I can get it together and get the cover and everything together – pick the songs. Every time I have downtime, or if I was working on soundtrack stuff I would just record another Elvis track or two so what started out as an EP, I now have more than enough for a full album. I have extra songs that won’t even make it on the record. So I’m really going to have to sit down and pick the songs that I really want on the record. But it came out really good, I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. A lot of people ask me about it all the time when I’m on the road. So, it will be nice to get it out in some period in 2019 and do some of those intimate shows I was talking about.”
