Days after revealing some details on his forthcoming album, Lightwork - calling it "strange, abstract, meandering and weird" - DEVIN TOWNSEND has released a cover of the 1958 classic "Witch Doctor".

No explanation given, none needed; this is DEVIN. Check it out below.

"Witch Doctor" was written and performed by Ross Bagdasarian under his stage name David Seville. It became a #1 hit in 1958 and rescued Liberty Records from near-bankruptcy. The song peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top 100, the predecessor to the Billboard Hot 100. It was considered a major surprise hit on the chart, where it became Seville's first #1 single and stayed in the position for three weeks. The single also peaked at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart.
 
DEVIN TOWNSEND will play at Sofia's Mixtape 5 club on 6 June 2021.
