Daughty and Halstorm’s Lzzy Hale have teamed up for a cover of an absolute classic and turned it into a modern belter.
Daughtry and Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale have teamed up for a special cover track.
And it’s for the legendary Journey.
That track is ‘Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)’, which you will also have heard in Stranger Things 4, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary TODAY (January 05).
And they have absolutely smashed it in so many ways.
The pair bounce off each other brilliantly with their powerful vocals providing the rough and smooth that a song like this needs, whilst taking the grit and heaviness up to 11.
It’s an incredible celebration of a classic track as much as it is of two modern rock powerhouses.
Lzzy had this to say about it:
“Chris Daughtry and I have been threatening to unleash a duet for years. What better way to do that than by paying tribute to one of our mutual influences…. JOURNEY! This song is not only part of the Stranger Things soundtrack, but has been my go-to for karaoke for as long as i can remember! I’m so honored to have been a part of this and I hope it makes you smile as big as I did while recording it!”
And Daughtry added this:
“I’ve always loved the song and I was wanting to do a classic cover and my wife and I were watching the Stranger Things season finale and there’s this incredibly intense scene and “Separate Ways” was a big part of this scene. It was so moving just the way it was used, it felt so cool and epic and I was immediately like “THIS is the one! We have to cover this song. Then I was like “how can we make this extra special? What if it was a duet? What if we got LZZY on it!!??” Needless to say I was pumped she said yes and I absolutely love how it turned out”
Here it is:
