“Love Don’t Live Here Anymore,” a hit song by Madonna, is being covered by Billy Idol. The rock musician intends to suppress the popular song with his own rendition in addition to covering it. The song is from the 40th anniversary version of the album “Rebel Yell.” “Rebel Yell,” Billy Idol’s 1983 blockbuster album, is turning 40 years old. Idol intends to commemorate the achievement with a special release, but not until 2024.
A version of the 1978 Rose Royce song “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore,” which may sound more known due to Madonna’s rendition, is among the “a few extras on it,” according to Idol. In a recent Yahoo interview, he talked about the song and gave the following details: It’s not what you anticipated. This song is a badass f*cking rock rendition of mine. I sound like I mean it when I sing this song. I must have been upset over something! I’m not sure what was going on in my life at the time, or even why I felt the need to perform the song. I think the reason I wanted to do it was that I’ve always searched for covers of songs like “Mony Mony” and “To Be a Lover” that people couldn’t image me singing. But since Madonna’s rendition is a rock version, we really would have shit all over it, if I may say so myself.
Billy Idol Disapproved of the “Rebel Yell” Cover Art. Idol also revealed that he didn’t like the record cover image at all. He and the firm had a falling out over a cover art change, so he grabbed the master tapes—inadvertently picking up the wrong ones—and gave them to his heroin dealer. The drug dealer then issued a warning to his record business, threatening to bootleg the tapes if they delayed payment for too long. Idol’s record label listened to him and complied with his requests. He said the corporation “never dared to cross” him again, adding that it was exciting to frighten them. The release date of the album’s 40th anniversary edition is unknown, although more information is still pending.
