VOLBEAT's latest album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, features a guest appearance from the legendary KING DIAMOND. Today, King Diamond and Volbeat are pleased to release the Jacob Hansen mastered version of this track, titled 'Room 24', as a free download gift to fans. Download the track in full-quality here
'Room 24' features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers MERCYFUL FATE, and one of Poulsen's musical idols.
Volbeat reveals, "I'm a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it's not something he does. He wrote his own lines, and it is half my lyrics and half his. It's a weird, scary story, and he's the perfect person for it."
Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is out on April 9th. The album contains the following 14 songs:
'Let's Shake Some Dust'
'The Nameless One'
'Dead But Rising'
'Cape Of Our Hero'
'Room 24' (feat. KING DIAMOND)
'The Hangman's Body Count'
'Lonesome Rider' (feat. SARAH BLACKWOOD)
'The Sinner Is You'
'Our Loved Ones'
