No, really, you heard that right, David Hasselhoff has released today a video for his cover of The Lords Of The New Church’s classic 1982 single “Open Your Eyes”.
The video sees the Hoff crooning the song in front of the classic imagery wall of CRTV’s, as one does, giving an earnest yet camp rendition of the classic post-punk song, while almost winking as he points towards the camera.
Watch the video below:
The song is the title track from The Hoff’s forthcoming album “Open Your Eyes” which is available via Cleopatra Records on September 27th on all formats:
“Marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, Hasselhoff bridges several musical cultures including the UK, Germany, and the US!”
Open Your Eyes, available for pre-order in a special edition red vinyl, also contains David Hasselhoff’s previously announced covers of Echo and The Bunnymen’s “Lip’s Like Sugar”, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Head On”, Modern English’s “I Melt With You,” Bowie’s “‘Heroes’” and more, with several guest musicians such James Williamson of The Stooges, and Al Jourgensen of Ministry.
