Mongolian rock band The Hu have joined forces with Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale for a new version of the track “Song of Women”. The single will appear on a deluxe edition of The Hu’s 2019 debut album, The Gereg, due out July 10th.
The Hu have been taking the rock world by storm over the past couple years, combining traditional Mongolian instrumentation and throat singing with Western rock sensibilities. Last year, they became the first Mongolian band to top any Billboard chart when their single “Wolf Totem” hit No. 1 on the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales tally.
In addition, The Hu’s single “Yuve Yuve Yu” featuring From Ashes to New singer Danny Case reached No. 4 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock chart, while an updated version of “Wolf Totem” featuring Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix also impacted U.S. rock radio.
Regarding her contribution to “Song of Women”, Hale stated, “I’m so thankful to The Hu for welcoming me, my words and my melody into this song. I can count on less than one hand the number of times where a project has changed the course of my spirit and renewed my faith in humanity. This was one of those projects. I’m still levitating.”
