Billy Idol Shares Animated Video For "Love Don't Live Here Anymore"

Billy Idol recently released his take on the Rose Royce classic “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore,” which will be featured on the upcoming 40th anniversary deluxe edition of "Rebel Yell."

Idol and his guitarist Steve Stevens recently discussed the decision to record the track in an animated video for the UDiscover’s Beyond the Bus series.

Idol said, “I always look for a song I could cover that people aren’t expecting. “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore was one of those songs, I don’t know why, I thought I could take it and do something with it dramatically different and make it my own.”

It never made the album, though, because while they were working on the song, someone from Idol’s record company informed them Madonna had just recorded her own cover of the tune.

Stevens said, “Nothing sobers you up like having Madonna steal one of your babies, so yeah, we decided to put it on the shelf, unfortunately.”

When they started putting together the 40th anniversary edition of Rebel Yell, they decided to revisit the cover.

The Rebel Yell deluxe expanded edition will be released April 26 but it is available for preorder now.
