On Friday, Nickelback will release a cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” by the Charlie Daniels Band. The recording will also feature Canadian jazz fusion guitarist Dave Martone.

The cover will be Nickelback’s first official release to follow their latest album, 2017’s Feed the Machine. In recent months, they’ve shared acoustic renditions of past songs while in quarantine. Nickelback is also releasing a 15th anniversary All the Right Reasons reissue on October 2.
