Korn Kovers is an unreleased cover album project by American nu-metal band KoЯn.

On August 31, 2016, during an interview with Billboard on their 12th studio record, The Serenity Of Suffering, Jonathan Davis, Fieldy, and Ray Luizer mentioned that they are in the process of working on the record, but did not mention any information on songs or a possible release date.


Recording and production

In an interview, vocalist Jonathan Davis stated that there are no explicit details for when the album will be released, and that it is just something the band would be working on during their spare time. Despite the silence that ensued following the album's failure to meet its unspecified April 2005 release date, Davis confirmed in an interview on July 18, 2007, that the band still intended to complete the project. In November 2008, on his official site, Jonathan Davis stated that they still plan on releasing the album. In a recent interview with Fieldy, he stated that he hopes on releasing it soon, after the band does some more covers. Songs may still be released in the future through other means.

Track listing

Confirmed titles

The track listing has undergone various revisions throughout development since early reports from October 2004. However, the following listing includes those that were originally revealed when Korn Kovers was announced. Korn has gone on to restate their desire to cover the same tracks on multiple occasions. "Fight the Power" was originally recorded exclusively for Korn Kovers, but has since appeared on the XXX: State of the Union soundtrack in 2005. "Love My Way" received airplay in 2005, which led to an MP3 rip of the song surfacing on the Internetshortly after. It has been mentioned that P. Exeter Blue I of American rock band Deadsy provided backing vocals on the track. In regards to "God of Emptiness", on July 19, 2007, Blabbermouth.net reported that there is currently no confirmation regarding whether Korn's version of the track, which was recorded during sessions of their fourth studio album Issues, will appear on Korn Kovers.
