David Ellefson (Megadeth) Streams Cover Of Post Malone’s “Over Now”

Megadeth’s David Ellefson is streaming his cover of Post Malone‘s “Over Now.“ The track, which is expected to appear on the bassist’s upcoming album, was recorded with Thom Hazaert (vocals), Andy Martongelli (guitars), Paolo Caridi (drums) and ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (guitars/backing vocals).

Ellefson previously commented:

“We’re all fans of Posty, and he’s also been a huge fan of Megadeth and all things Metal. Aside from being a great song for any genre, our cover of “Over Now” is our way of showing our mutual admiration and paying homage to our friend.

The old adage used to be that if you could strip a song down to just an acoustic guitar and a vocal, you probably had a great song. But times have changed now, that if you can take a song from another genre, and seamlessly transform it to a completely different genre, it just proves what a great song it really is.

And it’s a cool dynamic, as he’s a Pop, R&B and Hip-Hop guy, who dips into Rock and Metal, and we’re Rock and Metal guys who have dipped into pop, R&B and Hip-Hop, collaborating with DMC on Sleeping Giants, etc. So, I think this really just pushes that whole idea of exploration forward.

And with everything we’ve been doing with our David Ellefson Youth Music Foundation and the Grammy Music Education Coalition, we’ve been fortunate to stay productive, and continue to inspire people to grow and create in the face of an unprecedented situation. Just because we’re locked down, doesn’t mean we’re locked in.”
