Disturbed frontman David Draiman guests on a new song from guitarist Nita Strauss called “Dead Inside.”
Strauss, who plays in Alice Cooper‘s live band, previously released an instrumental album called Controlled Chaos in 2018, but her collaboration with Draiman marks her first solo offering with a guest vocalist.
“This is my first time releasing my own music with a vocalist, and I am so honored to take this step alongside a legend like David Draiman,” Strauss says. “David’s voice and powerful lyrics took this song to a level I could never have imagined! And we are so excited to unleash this song on the world.”
Draiman adds that he and Strauss have been “friends for years,” and calls the collaboration “serendipity.”
“Nita sent me the track…I didn’t have time to work on it right away…then in literally a couple of days, while killing time in Santa Monica, the whole thing just came together,” he says. “Incredibly proud of how it turned out and honored to be a part of it.”
You can download “Dead Inside” now via digital outlets. Its accompanying video is streaming now on YouTube.
Last year, Draiman collaborated with artists including Saul and Hyro the Hero, while Disturbed released a cover of the Sting tune “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You.” Disturbed’s most recent album is 2018’s Evolution.
