Sammy Hagar releases acoustic version of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus

Sammy Hagar has released a stripped-down, acoustic version of the Depeche Mode classic, “Personal Jesus.”

While the Red Rocker previously issued a full electric take on the track as part of his 2013 album, “Sammy Hagar & Friends”, the acoustic offering is now available via iTunes as part of an exclusive 12-song Bonus edition of his new album, “Lite Roast.”

“For those who have already purchased the album,” says Hagar, “you can grab just the new track on it's own.”

Released in October, “Lite Roast” sees the singer teamed with Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson to deliver stripped-down versions of tunes from his career.

“Lite Roast” was inspired by the rehearsals for Sammy’s appearance at the Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit show in May, which raised funds for the Pediatric Cancer Program at the University Of California, San Francisco UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.

Below is the electric verson of “Personal Jesus” from the “Sammy Hagar & Friends” album.
