New Rush Release
Canada’s Prog-rock kings Rush, next musical output may not come in the form of a traditional album. Drummer Neil Peart says he has begun writing lyrics for a new project, but that the band feels “liberated” in a way from the album format.
He says Rush might release a few songs immediately after recording them, and then release more, once they are ready. Peart’s new rock version of “The Hockey Theme” – the iconic song that used to open “Hockey Night in Canada” telecasts – will debut tomorrow during TSN’s broadcast of the Toronto-Philadelphia game.
This version will be available for digital download on iTunes on Tuesday January 19.
