"I have no plans on working with Limp again," Borland tells Spinner. "It's better for me for sure. I'm having a great time doing."
While Borland is in the studio recording a new album, he is pushing his band's covers collection 'Cover Your Heart and the Anvil Pants Odyssey,' a combination CD/DVD package due in stores Aug. 5.
Packed with reinterpreted songs of bands including Duran Duran ('Hungry Like the Wolf'), the Jesus Lizard ('The Art of Self Defense'), Sisters of Mercy ('Lucretia My Reflection') and PJ Harvey ('Rid of Me'), 'Cover Your Heart and the Anvil Pants Odyssey' could have been two albums, Borland says.
"It was probably the most fun I've ever had making a record," Borland, who drew the line at 10 covers, says. "The hard part was done. The songs were written. So it was just having our take on the songs, having our way with the songs and having fun with it."
Having fun for Borland means not only interpreting others' songs, but writing his own for Black Light Burns, which allows Borland to explore his musical and vocal side, something he was unable to do in Limp Bizkit. "I can write a song and know what it's about and tailor the music," he says. "It all makes sense together, instead of random lyrics on top of music that sounds cool."
