A Perfect Circle Cover Protest Songs

Heavy rockers A PERFECT CIRCLE are cashing in on the American presidential election by releasing an album of classic protest songs.

The group, led by TOOL star MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN, have recorded covers of hits like ELVIS COSTELLO's (WHAT'S SO FUNNY 'BOUT) PEACE, LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING and MARVIN GAYE's WHAT'S GOING ON?

Keenan admits he was particularly thrilled to cover JOHN LENNON's IMAGINE: "That song was so beautiful and uplifting... and now a couple of decades later, things have gotten worse, not better.

"I tried to imagine if he'd been singing that song for the past 20 years, and how much sadder he'd be singing it.

"I thought we had to do that version, the version of how he'd feel in his heart now."
