Rush Single 'Headlong Flight' Revealed
Rush have unveiled the first single from their forthcoming album, and unconfirmed North American tour dates have leaked online. "Headlong Flight" will appear on the album "Clockwork Angels", due June 12. You can hear it in the player below, but if it's taken off YouTube, you can find it on Rolling Stone. "'Headlong Flight' was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end," bassist Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone (via HenneMusic). "Alex [Lifeson] and I had 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." Hear "Headlong Flight" here. What do you think?
