Mongolian sensations The Hu have released a new version of their viral hit Wolf Totem. The song - which has had 21 million views on YouTube since its release last year - now features a vocal courtesy of Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix.

“I’m honoured to be part of such a powerful new blend of rock'n'roll,” says Shaddix. “The Hu are the real deal. Don’t sleep on this.” 

The new version of the song has already garnered close to a million views on YouTube.

In October The Hu released a new version of another viral hit Yuve Yuve Yu, this time featuring English vocals from labelmate Danny Case, singer from American Nu metal revivalists From Ashes To New. 

The new versions of the songs are part of a series of songs from The Hu featuring vocals from established singers, with a future release including a contribution from Halestorm leader Lzzy Hale.  

Last September, the band announced they'd be embarking on a European tour in January. Dates below.
