Alice in Chains vocalist William DuVall guests on a new version of Mongolian rock outfit The Hu‘s song “This Is Mongol.”
The updated recording, dubbed “This is Mongol (Warrior Souls),” features DuVall on guitar and English vocals alongside the original’s Mongolian lyrics.
“We are so excited to be performing our single, ‘This is Mongol (Warrior Souls),’ with William DuVall,” says The Hu member Temka. “He’s not only an amazing vocalist but also has unique rhythm and technique to his performance, and his style matches our energy and our throat singing. The song is about the warrior souls that are within us, and its purpose is to inspire you and awaken your soul. We hope everyone enjoys this piece of art.
“It was such an exciting and fulfilling challenge to write and produce something that remained true to The Hu’s sensibilities while also resonating with my own,” DuVall adds. “‘Warrior Souls’ is a testament to the fact that, no matter where we come from, in the end, we all want the same things-to prosper in our own time despite the odds arrayed against us, making previous generations proud and leaving a worthy legacy for the future. I’m honored by this collaboration and very proud of the result.”
You can listen to “This Is Mongol (Warrior Souls)” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.
The original “This Is Mongol” appears on The Hu’s 2022 album, Rumble of Thunder.
