The HU debut their ‘hunnu rock’ cover of Metallica’s Sad But True, along with a music video. Endorsed by Metallica themselves, the track is a unique take on the beloved classic that has over 142 Million streams on Spotify alone.
The HU’s distinct style allows listeners to hear this song in a completely new way. The band added traditional Mongolian instrumentation along with their signature style of throat singing and swapped out Sad But True’s English lyrics for their native language, Mongolian. The same distorted guitar melody from the original song helps drive the song forward, but the originality and musical prowess of The HU’s distinguishing sound makes this track stand out on its own.
With this cover, The Hu also launches BETTER NOISE’s BEST OF series that runs throughout the label’s 15th year in business – 2021. The compilation features exciting new versions of songs from their diverse rock catalogue. The HU will kick off this campaign, as the band embodies all the label’s hopes for the future of rock – diversity, expert musicianship, passionate performance and clever creative collaboration.
