Rick Parfitt Drops 'Long Distance Love'


Rick Parfitt's camp has released a new posthumous single titled "Long Distance Love." The Status Quo rocker passed in 2016 and the release is pulled from his solo album Over And Out, which is due out March 23 via earMUSIC.

Muse rocker Chris Wolstenholm stepped in to record some of the parts on the track and he says it was truly a challenge:

"Take it from me, it was harder than anyone would imagine. Rick's strength as a player was his immediately recognisable style - very staccato, like his left hand was constantly bouncing off the strings. It's very hard to do, and I've never seen anyone else do it quite like him. But then, there never was anyone quite like Rick."

His label decribes the album as "a true labour of love and showcases the softer side of Rick as a writer, artist and performer away from the Quo maelstrom as well as the purest rock and roll sound of earlier Status Quo records."
