The Hu is now streaming a new version of their 2022 single "This Is Mongol" featuring Alice In Chains vocalist William DuVall. The new version is titled "This Is Mongol (Warrior Souls)" with an English-language chorus and a music video co-directed by Michael Lombardi. The video also features a peak at the new film The Retaliators featuring both Lombardi and The Hu.
"We are so excited to be performing our single 'This is Mongol (Warrior Souls)' with William DuVall," The Hu's tovshuur player and backing vocalist Temka. "He's not only an amazing vocalist but also has unique rhythm and technique to his performance, and his style matches our energy and our throat singing. The song is about the warrior souls that are within us, and its purpose is to inspire you and awaken your soul. We hope everyone enjoys this piece of art."
"It was such an exciting and fulfilling challenge to write and produce something that remained true to The Hu's sensibilities while also resonating with my own," said DuVall. "'Warrior Souls' is a testament to the fact that, no matter where we come from, in the end, we all want the same things-to prosper in our own time despite the odds arrayed against us, making previous generations proud and leaving a worthy legacy for the future. I'm honored by this collaboration and very proud of the result."
