"Murderfolk" artist Amigo the Devil (aka Danny Kiranos) recently wrapped up a tour with King Dude and Twin Temple in support of his 2018 Ross Robinson-produced debut album Everything Is Fine, and today he follows that album with a cover of Tom Jones' "Delilah," which premieres in this post.

"I remember hearing Tom Jones songs around my parents and their friends when I was young. At the time, I didn’t process how dark some of them really are," Danny says. "'Delilah,' for example, is usually such a drunkard karaoke sing-along that I feel like most people still don’t notice it. This version came from wondering what it would sound like to match the mood of the song with the content of the story being told." Amigo the Devil does indeed turn this aleady-pretty-dark song into something even more noir-sounding, and really makes it his own in the process. Listen to his cover below.

Since we last spoke, Amigo the Devil was added as an opener to Murder by Death's 20th anniversary tour (that's a great pairing), including the Brooklyn show happening March 28 at Warsaw (tickets). He was also just announced for Psycho Las Vegas. All dates are listed below.
