Multi-platinum international artist Dennis Lloyd partners with Spotify to release Spotify Singles including a stripped-down cover of Audioslave’s “Like A Stone,” which features guitar icon Tom Morello, and “Aura”, off Lloyd’s Exident EP released this spring. Listen HERE. Both songs were recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Lloyd’s Spotify Singles drops as he crosses one billion streams across all platforms.
Citing Chris Cornell
as important inspirations growing up, Lloyd’s collaboration with Tom Morello
is a milestone in more ways than one. Their rendition of “Like A Stone”
first artist collaboration, as he writes and produces all of his own music.
explains, “Two of my biggest musical inspirations are Kurt Cobain & Chris Cornell. My song ‘Nevermind’ was named after Nirvana’s album, so when I had to choose a cover for my Spotify Singles session, choosing ‘Like A Stone’ by Audioslave was the natural next choice as I grew up constantly listening to the song. The fact that Tom Morello from Audioslave, who is one of the song’s original writers, agreed to play his legendary guitar solo on my cover is such an honor and literally a dream come true.”
Morello stated, “Dennis Lloyd confided that Audioslave and especially Chris Cornell’s vocals were very inspiring to him. I’m happy to have joined him on his beautiful cover of ‘Like A Stone.’ He’s a great new artist and has really done justice to the tune.”
