Sci-fi storytellers Coheed & Cambria have teamed up with Rick Springfield on their new song, ‘Jessie’s Girl 2’, and extension to the narrative of the 1981 hit, ‘Jessie’s Girl’.
This is what vocalist/guitarist Claudio Sanchez had to say about it.
“Has anyone ever written a sequel to another artist’s song? I don’t think so. As a fan of movies, it just seemed like a really interesting idea. It’s kind of like a National Lampoon’s movie meets So I Married An Axe Murderer.”
The sequel of sorts to Springfield‘s 80s track is accompanied by a video (directed by Craig Bernard and Cully Bunker), which you can check out below.
The band’s ninth studio album, ‘Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures’, is out now via Roadrunner Records.
