Rush Streams New Song in Advance of New Album Release!

Rush is no stranger to … well, just about anything at this point. Releasing their first album nearly 40 years ago, they have spent the decades remaining faithful to fans, providing some of the best prog-rock accompanied by impressive musicianship that complements without overtaking the songs.

Now they are preparing a new album, ‘Clockwork Angels’ due out on June 12th. To build anticipation, they are streaming “Headlong Flight” for free in a variety of places, including an official version with lyrics streaming on YouTube.

The song will be instantly recognizable to anyone with even passing familiarity with the band: Geddy Lee starts off with romping bass line, soon joined by Alex Lifeson’s dense chords and Neil Peart’s driving rhythm. The structure is complex, syncopated and in a variety of time signatures. Lifeson’s solo is a crazed frenzy of too many notes, but the song never loses focus.

You can pre-order the CD at Amazon for $16.11

Check out the new song!

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember – and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life – I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a ‘Laptop First’ person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs … and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies … but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
