The HU debut their ‘hunnu rock’ cover of Metallica’s Sad But True today, along with a music video. Endorsed by Metallica themselves, the track is a unique take on the beloved classic that has over 142 Million streams on Spotify alone.
The HU’s distinct style allows listeners to hear this song in a completely new way. The band added traditional Mongolian instrumentation along with their signature style of throat singing and swapped out Sad But Tru’s English lyrics for their native language, Mongolian. The same distorted guitar melody from the original song helps drive the song forward, but the originality and musical prowess of The HU’s distinguishing sound makes this track stand out on its own.
With this cover, The Hu also launches ‘BETTER NOISE’s BEST OF’ series that runs throughout the label’s 15th year in business – 2021. The compilation features exciting new versions of songs from their diverse rock catalog. The HU will kick off this campaign, as the band embodies all the label’s hopes for the future of rock – diversity, expert musicianship, passionate performance and clever creative collaboration.
Though they’ve raked in well over 100 million views on their YouTube videos and tens of millions more on Spotify, The Hu continues to find new ways of reaching new audiences. From their new cover song, to being on the ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ video game and soundtrack, their original sound has carved out a genre that is all their own. Radio audiences took the band’s 2 singles in 2020 (Yuve Yuve Yu featuring Danny Case of From Ashes To New and Wolf Totem featuring Jacoby Shaddix) into the Top 5 at the ‘Active Rock’ format.
Earlier in 2020, The HU released the deluxe version of their 2019 album ‘The Gereg’. ‘The Gereg’ debuted at #1 on the World Album Charts and Top New Artist Albums, Top 5 Globally in US, Canada, UK and more (Rock Music Albums) and Top 10 Current albums in US, Canada, Australia among other territories. In addition, they released the documentary film, THE HU: ROAD TO THE GEREG on Youtube which looks back at the making of their debut album, along with behind the scenes footage from their worldwide tours, video shoots, and more.
The band is involved in the film THE RETALIATORS, a high-octane horror-thriller, starring Michael Lombardi (FX’s Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark, The Outsider) and Joseph Gatt (Dumbo) with special guest appearances by some of rock music’s biggest names. THE HU‘s Jaya plays a small part in the movie and the band contributed their hit track Wolf Totem featuring Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) to the soundtrack.
