Doro Duets with Rob Halford Himself on Cover of Judas Priest’s “Living After Midnight”: Stream

German metal singer Doro has shared a cover of the Judas Priest classic “Living After Midnight” featuring guest vocals from Priest frontman Rob Halford himself.

Considering the heavy metal pedigree of both singers — Doro as the frontwoman of the iconic German band Warlock in the ’80s and as a longstanding solo artist, and Halford as the Metal God  — “Living After Midnight” comes as a natural choice for a cover version. It’s a confident and rebellious track, and the duo sings it with conviction. Obviously, Halford has performed the song countless times, but still sounds as triumphant as ever delivering the boastful lyrics alongside Doro.

“Judas Priest and Rob Halford have always been one of my biggest inspirations and continue to be my heroes,” remarked Doro in a press release. “It was so great working with Rob. ‘Living After Midnight’ has always been one of my favorite songs and I’m so proud of our duet!”

The cover will be included as the third song on Doro’s forthcoming album, Conqueress – Forever Strong and Proud, a whopping 20-track offering that features new originals as well as heavy metal covers.

“It’s pretty heavy. It’s pretty hard,” she recently told The Metal Voice regarding the LP. “The first five songs are totally heavy. Then there’s a midtempo anthem coming on. But I think it’s pretty heavy. The song ‘I Will Prevail’ is the heaviest, I think. And the opener I love so much. It’s called ‘Children of the Dawn’. And then there’s some duets on it.”
