Strange Pairing: Rob Zombie and Lionel Richie
Industrial metal rocker Rob Zombie has teamed up with R&B crooner Lionel Richie. The duo recently recorded a new version of “Brick House,” the classic song from Richie’s former group The Commodores.
The song has been recorded for the soundtrack of Rob Zombie’s film “House of 1000 Corpses” and also includes a guest appearance from rapper Trina.
The film was written and directed by Zombie and has been held up for release for almost two years. Universal Pictures was originally scheduled to release the film but after viewing the finished product, they took a pass on it. The film will finially hit theaters in April courtesy of Lion’s Gate Pictures.
The soundtrack will also feature the title track from Zombie, The Ramones “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue” and 50's country star Slim Whitman's “I Remember You”.
