Disturbed are following-up on the success of their cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” with a new cover, this time taking on Sting’s “If I Ever Lose my Faith in You”

Disturbed are known for their popular cover songs, as the band’s 2015 rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” became the band’s highest charting track on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Now, David Draiman and company are back with a new cover, this time taking on the Sting classic, “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You.” The song opens as a delicate ballad, not unlike “The Sound of Silence,” and then slowly blossoms into a heavier track, featuring Draiman’s thick, fiery vocals. Listen to the powerful song below.

“We have loved this song for a long time,” Disturbed said in a collective statement. “Even though it was released in 1993, it seems strangely applicable to today’s world.”

“The song is about losing faith, and might initially sound pessimistic, but it’s about the importance and power of personal relationships, and how they can save you and provide solace in an increasingly confusing world,” the band added.

Disturbed’s version of “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You” is currently available for download and streaming via digital outlets.

In other news, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Disturbed’s groundbreaking debut album, 2000’s “The Sickness.” In honor of the milestone, the band recently unveiled a deluxe, 20th anniversary version of the collection, available on both digitally and on vinyl.

Disturbed also had a summer’s worth of tour dates lined up for this year with Staind and Bad Wolves, but that trek was pushed into 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
