Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes shares his cover of Mary J Blige song "Family Affair"

Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes announced a new solo covers album.

The record comes out on June 7th and will be called Eagles Of Death Metal Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote.

A bunch of the covers are rock jams. He covers friend Josh Homme’s band, Queens of the Stone Age. Brody Dalle’s Distillers get a cover. Then there a few maybe unorthodox selections like George Michael of Mary J. Blige’s 2001 absolute masterpiece, “Family Affair.”

  1. ‘God Of Thunder’ (originally by KISS)
  2. ‘It’s So Easy’ (originally by Guns N’ Roses)
  3. ‘High Voltage/ It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll)’ (originally by AC/DC)
  4. ‘So Alive’ (originally by Love & Rockets)
  5. ‘Beat on the Brat’ (originally by The Ramones)
  6. ‘Abracadabra’ (originally by Steve Miller Band)
  7. ‘Careless Whisper’ (originally by George Michael)
  8. ‘Family Affair’ (originally by Mary J. Blige)
  9. ‘The Hunger’ (originally by The Distillers)
