Rush has released the first single from their forthcoming studio album Clockwork Angels, "Headlong Flight." Clockwork Angels is the band's first new studio recording in five years and first for the band's new label home Anthem/Roadrunner.
"'Headlong Flight' was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end," bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone. "Alex [Lifeson] and I assembled the song to be an instrumental. 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 12.
