Dave Gahan is on a covers kick. The Depeche Mode singer just released Imposter, an album of songs by PJ Harvey, Bob Dylan, and more, and last night, he took to The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform Cat Power’s “Metal Heart” with his longtime musical partner Soulsavers.
Gahan dialed in to Corden from a green room in Berlin, having just finished another show only minutes before. He talked about recording Imposter at Rick Rubin’s studio, and how he had started with a very large list of covers, but “the songs, in the end, kind of chose themselves.”
Afterwards, The Late Late Show rolled out a pre-taped performance that found Gahan and Soulsavers performing in red lighting in front of crimson curtain. Check out the cover of “Metal Heart” below.
