The very first covers album by Germany's #1 charting LORD OF THE LOST - honoring favorites by Michael Jackson, Judas Priest, Billy Idol & more!

Following their electrifying cover of Billy Idol’s “Shock To The System”, LORD OF THE LOST has unveiled a brand-new official video for their cover of Roxette’s “The Look” - already known from the band’s most successful album to date, Blood & Glitter (2022, #1 German album charts). Now, the song is being re-released on the 2CD special edition - as well as digitally - of the first cover album in the band’s history, Weapons Of Mass Seduction (December 29, 2023).

The energizing cover version and video features none other than German pop singer Blümchen as a duet partner, who has landed numerous top hits and sold millions of records since beginning her career as a teenage star in the 90s. This summer, LORD OF THE LOST once again impressively showcased that they don’t subscribe to any norms and genre boundaries when they performed the song together with Blümchen on the main stage of the legendary Wacken Open Air, following the headlining show of Iron Maiden.

Representing Germany at the ESC finals in May 2023 brought LORD OF THE LOST to the attention of mainstream media across Europe (with features from BILD, The Sun, BBC among others), exposing their artistic universe to much wider audiences, and was one of the main highlights of the band’s most successful year to date. Check out the new official video for “The Look” and pre-order your version of Weapons Of Mass Seduction now!

Chris Harms on “The Look“:
“Covering this song has been on my bucket list since I was a teenager. But it wasn't possible until now, because I didn't want just any singer at my side as a duet partner, but someone to whom Roxette means as much as it did to me from the very beginning. And I found this person in Jasmin, Blümchen. Moreover, without Per Gessle's songwriting, I wouldn't be the composer I am today. Our cover of 'The Look' is my chance to thank him for that.”

Blümchen (aka Jasmin Wagner) adds:
"'The Look' is our declaration of love to Roxette. Marie Fredriksson has left a huge gap. It's very nice to be able to honor her in this way and thank her for everything she gave us during her lifetime."

A year after the release of their successful #1 charting album, Blood & Glitter (Official German Album Charts), LORD OF THE LOST are back with a covers album, Weapons Of Mass Seduction, set to be released on December 29, 2023 via Napalm Records. The exciting new offering features plenty of genre-crossing tracks and wraps up the busiest year in the band’s history so far. In addition to storming the charts with their latest studio album, huge highlights include representing Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool in May, providing direct tour support for Iron Maiden (again!), winning over mainstream media internationally, several sold out headline shows and a summer full of big festival appearances.

While the album is entirely composed of covers, Weapons Of Mass Seduction confirms LORD OF THE LOST’s creative ability to make even unexpected songs their own, and further confirms their status. The covers album comes in various different formats – some of them containing a second CD with 11 covers that are already released or have been played live. The deluxe boxset includes a third CD with 10 acoustic tracks, exclusively available in this format.

LORD OF THE LOST state:
"During the production of our last album, Blood & Glitter, while recording our Roxette cover 'The Look' in Finland, it had already become clear that we had opened Pandora's box. The energy and fun of covering the songs of beloved and respected colleagues and idols was something we were determined to continue. So even before the release of Blood & Glitter we started working on this 'covers album' project, which for us is the perfect dessert to Blood & Glitter, before we embark on the adventure of reinventing ourselves again for a new studio album."
