An Elvis Presley cover will be recorded by the metal band Deftones on the upcoming follow up to their 2009 release Diamond Eyes. Speaking with audioinkradio.com, frontman Chino Moreno explained that producer Nick Raskulinecz helped focus the project quickly.
"We adopted a work ethic that was really productive on the last record. We said we were going to work eight hours a day, and since we had those hours, everybody in there was super focused," he said. "Before that we had been working up in Sacramento, and the vibe was everybody would come in and hang out and we would work when we got around to it. We had to get more efficient."
He also spoke on the Elvis cover saying:
"We've done a lot of '80s stuff, but we wanted to do something from farther back," Moreno said. "We sat down and everybody had their computers on and were playing songs that we like. So we're going to do an Elvis Presley song — we have five Elvis songs that we've been talking about. And we're going to do Earth, Wind, and Fire. Hopefully we'll get at least two, maybe three or four."
