Puddle Of Mudd released their version of The Rolling Stones classic "Gimme Shelter" on iTunes today.

The track is the first single from their forthcoming album re:(disc)overed, which is set for release on August 30th. For this release, Puddle Of Mudd dig back into their own past for the songs that turned them on to becoming musicians in the first place.

re:(disc)overed includes such classics as AC/DC's "TNT," Steve Miller's "The Joker," Elton John's "Rocket Man," the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (which Puddle Of Mudd recorded with BC Jean), Neil Young's "Old Man," and of course the first single, "Gimmie Shelter."

"Our goal in interpreting these songs was to pay more tribute rather than reinvent," Phillips added. "These are all classics that are perfect in every sense, so who are we to mess with that? We just wanted to represent them in their true form and add a little of our sound to them. We cut everything with very few takes and tried to keep it very live like those old seventies records. We didn't want to Pro Tool the hell out of it."

Puddle Of Mudd will take part in the Rock Allegiance Tour which begins on August 24th in Dallas. The tour also features P.O.D., Red, Crossfade and Drive A.
