David Hasselhoff to Collaborate on Cover of “Sweet Caroline” with Ministry’s Al Jourgensen


Actor David Hasselhoff broke the internet with his 2015 synthwave banger, “True Survivor,” the video for which featured footage from the retro-futuristic film Kung Fury, becoming an instant cult hit.

Can The Hoff capture lightning in a bottle again? We’ll find out on September 27 when he releases his next album, Open Your Eyes, with some very special metal guests: Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen, L.A. Guns guitarist/namesake Tracii Guns, and Billy Idol / Deadland Ritual / one-time Vince Neil guitarist Steve Stevens. The collaboration with Jourgensen is a cover of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” which will surely be VERY interesting, while Guns will be contributing to Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again.”

While we wait for that, reminisce with “True Survivor” below and watch a brief preview of the album from Facebook.
