If the original version of the thrilling track already managed to reach over 50 million streams across platforms, the exciting new version will set the international heavy metal world on fire!
“Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend” feat. Alissa White-Gluz will be part of the bonus album Missa Cantorem, that various special formats of Call Of The Wild include.
Alissa White-Gluz on the new single: “I enjoyed putting a woman’s spin on “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend”; altering the lyrics to fit a strong message of female empowerment and delivering them with a mighty roar! Thanks to Powerwolf for being open to having their song reconstructed like this!”
Falk Maria Schlegel on the video and the collaboration with Alissa White-Gluz: “It was a pleasure to work and perform together with Alissa for the very first time on our joint video shoot for “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend”. Immediately, there was a great energetic atmosphere on set! Alissa is such a wonderful artist and interacting with her during this shoot as well as re-interpreting this video together was an amazing experience.”
More words from Alissa on the collaboration: “When Powerwolf invited me to cover one of their tunes, I had to first check out the song and familiarize myself with the overall vibe. I knew the play on words in the title was genius so I watched their music video dozens of times. I really liked the song but I felt the only way I could truthfully cover it would be if I were to interpret the song to praise and empower women rather than demonize or objectify them.”
She adds, explaining: “I agreed to cover the song but I took the liberty of reversing the gender roles in the lyrics with just a few subtle tweaks. I also suggested a role reversal video, in jest, when I presented my version to the band. I think my exact words were something like “Here is the song but I expect a pile of naked monks at my feet in return!” – to poke fun. I did not expect that they would not only appreciate my modifications but that we would actually make the video happen, too!”
