AWOLNATION will soon be adding some new “Wind” to their “Sail.”

The Aaron Bruno-led outfit has announced an upcoming cover of the Scorpions power ballad classic “Wind of Change,” due out this Friday, January 21. Not only that, but the recording will also feature Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd and Portugal. the Man.

“Wind of Change,” Scorpions’ biggest U.S. hit, was originally released in 1991, and became synonymous with the end of the Cold War and the Soviet Union. The song resurfaced in 2020 thanks to a podcast that explored the rumor that “Wind of Change” had been written by the CIA.
