The Dead Daisies — the hard rock “collective” founded by Australian musician and businessman David Lowy — released a new digital EP, The Lockdown Sessions, on July 17th through Steamhammer/SPV. It contains four acoustic tracks, all of them exclusive to this EP.

Lowy said, “As soon as it had become clear that our tour and album release would have to be postponed until 2021, we recorded these acoustic tracks with our fans in mind. The Lockdown Sessions is our way to stay in touch with everyone despite the global restrictions.”

The Lockdown Sessions contains four tracks: Unspoken, Righteous Days and an amazing version of the Humble Pie classic 30 Days In The Hole, with these three exclusive unplugged versions also featuring as powerful rock tracks on the upcoming album, Holy Ground. The EP rounds out with a stripped back version of Fortunate Son, featuring drummer Deen Castronovo on lead vocals.

A 15-minute video featuring The Dead Daisies’ performances of all four songs from The Lockdown Sessions EP can be seen below.

The Lockdown Sessions unmistakably proves that Glenn Hughes has already added his distinctive sound to The Dead Daisies.

“As we all know, Glenn is a fantastic bassist and vocalist who is rightly referred to as ‘The Voice Of Rock,'” Lowy says. “We really enjoyed ourselves with him at the studio and can hardly wait to present the new songs and current lineup live on stage.”

The Lockdown Sessions track listing:

1. Unspoken (acoustic version) 
2. Fortunate Son (live) 
3. Righteous Days (acoustic version) 
4. 30 Days In The Hole (acoustic version)

Holy Ground will be released on January 22nd, 2021. The follow-up to 2018’s Burn It Down, will be the band’s first to feature Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Country Communion), who joined the group last year as its new bassist and vocalist, replacing John Corabi (Mötley Crüe) and Marco Mendoza (Blue Murder, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy).
