‘Night Rider,’ ‘Baywatch’ Star Going Metal For New Album

Now we’ve heard everything.

I know, I know – I said that last month when Freddie Mercury rocked out in a 120mph wind tunnel, but I mean it this time! Earlier this week it was announced that David Hasselhoff plans to go metal for his brand new album, promising something that will “be a touch heavier” than his previous records.

“I’m doing some heavy metal songs on my new album,” the 66-year-old Baywatch star told Deutsche Presse-Agentur in a recent interview. “Why not? I do not have an album title yet, but it should read ‘Everything is allowed’. I do everything. Because I can. Because I want to.”

We’ve long known that the Hoff is a metal fan – Iron Maiden and Ministry are two bands that immediately come to mind as ones he particularly likes – but to hear him venture into the genre himself should be nothing short of interesting and more than a little bit entertaining.

In a video shared to Facebook by Adam Hamilton, Hasselhoff’s producer and former member of L.A. Guns, he gives a taste of what fans and critics alike can expect when the album arrives. He’s recording a cover of Echo & The Bunnymen’s “Lips Like Sugar,” and reveals at one point that he’ll even tackling The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Head On” for the new album, too.

Check it out:


The album, which as of now has neither a name or a release date, will also feature another member of L.A. Guns in its production: Tracii Guns, who will be playing guitar for Hasselhoff.


This should be…exciting, to say the very least! All jokes aside, David Hasselhoff is a pretty big deal in Germany, scoring a #1 hit with his song “Looking for Freedom” – which, you guessed it, will also be making an extra special appearance on his new album exactly 30 years after it went #1.

Will you be checking it out, or passing on the Hoff’s latest foray into the metal world? We sure will!
