††† (Cross) returns with a dizzying cover of “Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus
â â â (Crosses) – the electropop side-project of Deftones’s Chino Moreno – is back with a cheerful new cover song, putting its minimalist, but paradoxically energetic twist, on Q Lazzarus’ 1988 track “Goodbye Horses” .
This is Crosses’ first release in just a few days of a year, with a cover of Cause & Effect, “The Beginning Of The End”, which landed on December 26th. This track was sort of a comeback single – before it, Crosses’ last release was their self-titled 2014 album.
Fans of the project will also note that Moreno and co. have already tried “Goodbye Horses” once, releasing a cover of the song – which appeared in the 1991 film Thesilenceofthelambs – shortly after their aforementioned debut hit shelves. The new version shines a bit brighter, however, with a sharper mix and more polished big-screen output.

In a five-star review of “Ohms,” NME James McMahon said: âWhile it’s not at all self-explanatory – lyricist Chino Moreno has rarely indicated what he’s talking about – you can feel both pain and catharsis throughout Deftones’ ninth studio album. It’s heavy, both sound and emotional.
