Brian May has teamed up with American Metalheads Five Finger Death Punch to record a new version of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s ‘Blue on Black’.

After the huge success of Queen’s biopic recently, Brian May has enjoyed being in the spotlight once again in honor of Freddie Mercury.

Brian May decided to record the track with Five Finger Death Punch to raise money for The Gary Sinise foundation in support of first responders.

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory states, “To raise awareness for and support first responders is a cause that’s always been close to our hearts. These brave men and women leave their homes every morning not knowing if they’ll ever see their families again.

Yet they make a conscious choice to do so for the greater good. What better way to make a difference than to join forces with some of our friends in country, blues and classic rock who happen to be some of the biggest names in those genres and together celebrate these heroes.“

Blues rock legend Kenny Wayne Shepherd adds: "When Five Finger Death Punch approached me about teaming up with them to do a special version of ‘Blue On Black’, I was thrilled to do it. When they told me Brantley Gilbert and Brian May were also going to be part of it, I was honored. This is a powerful collaboration of rock, country and blues artists and a true testament to the commonalities these musical styles share and I think the fans will appreciate and enjoy it as much as we do.”
