There is plenty of anticipation for Device‘s debut album, especially given the star-studded lineup of guests that appear on the disc alongside David Draiman. The vocalist spoke to Revolver about one of his favorite collaborations — a duet cover with Lzzy Hale on the Ozzy Osbourne / Lita Ford classic ‘Close My Eyes Forever’ — and shared why the Halestorm vocalist was the right woman for the track.

The singer explains, “For years I’d wanted to re-do ‘Close My Eyes Forever’ by Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourne. I always thought it was a fantastic idea and needed the right combination of elements and events and needed to have the right woman to play the role of Lita in this song, and Lzzy Hale, in my opinion, is the strongest, most distinctive voice, female voice, in rock today. I think that she’s just as good as it gets.”

In the video interview clip, Draiman goes on to praise all of his guests and states how blessed he feels to have gotten Glenn Hughes, Geezer Butler, Tom Morello and others to contribute to Device’s debut album.

The band’s self-titled debut disc is due April 9. The lead single, ‘Vilify,’ is expected to arrive on Feb. 19.
