When they entered the studio to work on songs for a follow-up to 2009′s ‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate,’ Puddle of Mudd had a hard time finding the inspiration for new material — so they decided just to have fun playing some of their favorite tunes by other artists.

“We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn’t time yet,” said guitarist Paul Phillip in a recent Billboard interview. “We had been doing (AC/DC’s) ‘TNT’ and (the Steve Miller Band’s) ‘The Joker’ and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another, and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast.”

The result is ‘re:(disc)overed,’ scheduled to arrive August 2, with the band’s take on the Rolling Stones’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ serving as the first single. While Phillip insists the album doesn’t consist of “slavish copies,” he says they didn’t try to change the originals. “We really tried to keep them true to what they were, because they are great songs already, so who am I to go in and change a Rolling Stones song?”

Track list for Puddle of Mudd’s ‘re:(disc)overed’:

“Gimme Shelter” (Rolling Stones)
“Old Man” (Neil Young)
“TNT” (AC/DC)
