Korn have unleashed a new a cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” to honor the late Charlie Daniels, who passed away in early July at age 83.

The new song will raise funds for Awakening Youth, a charity organization that helps children who have lost parents because of divorce, death, or other circumstances. Hp-hop artist Yelawolf appears as a guest on the track.

“I’ve always said it, but country music is some of the darkest ever,” frontman Jonathan Davis said in a statement. “Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, and, of course, Charlie Daniels all turned pain into some really powerful music that sounded alive. ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ is a classic story, and we wanted to release it now to help others in need.”

The band added via a statement on Bandcamp, “Charlie left a musical legacy that goes beyond just one genre, and we want to honor his talent and influence with our own rendition of his song. It is available exclusively via Bandcamp, where 100% of all proceeds are being donated to the non-profit organization, Awakening Youth. Special thanks to our boy Yelawolf for jumping on the track with us.”

Korn’s cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” is available now exclusively via Bandcamp. Listen to the song below.

“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” is the first bit of new music the band has released since their latest album, “The Nothing,” arrived in September 2019.
