RUSH Streaming New Track “Headlong Flight”
“Headlong Flight”, the first single from Rush’s 20th studio album Clockwork Angels, can be streamed at Rolling Stone and is reported to be one of the trio’s most hard-charging numbers in recent years.
“Headlong Flight” was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end,” says frontman Geddy Lee. “Alex [Lifeson] and I had a blast jamming in my home studio one day before the second leg of the Time Machine tour, and I did not revisit that jam until a year later. Alex and I assembled the song to be an instrumental and its original title was “Take That Lampshade Off Yo Head!”, but once we saw the lyrics Neil [Peart] had written, I knew that the spirit of the lyrics matched the instrumental perfectly and it was just a matter of making them fit and writing the melodies.”
Clockwork Angels will be released on June 12th.
