Rush: "Headlong Flight"; Next Single From "Clockwork Angels" Hits Radio In April
to a posting on the Rushfan
the next single from Rush's long-awaited new album, "Clockwork
Angels", will be a track called "Headlong Flight".
A five-and-a-half-minute edit of the song will be hitting radio on
April 19, with the full seven-and-a-half-minute cut set to appear on
the full-length CD, which is scheduled to arrive on May 29 in the
work on the follow-up to 2007's "Snakes & Arrows" in
late 2009 with the production team of Nick Raskulinecz (Foo
Fighters, Stone Sour) and engineer Richard Chycki (Aerosmith,
Dream Theater). Two
songs from "Clockwork Angels" that
were previously digitally released,"BU2B" and "Caravan",
were reportedly re-recorded for the forthcoming CD due to a record
label change in the middle of the making of the album. As
previously reported, "Clockwork Angels" is
being turned into a novel by Colorado-based sci-fi author Kevin
J. Anderson, who wrote on Facebook, "Most of you are aware
of my long-standing friendship with (Rush drummer) Neil
. . For more than twenty years, Neil and I have wanted to collaborate
on something MAJOR, a way we could tie together our imaginations, and
at last that's happening. I'm writing the novelization of Rush's
forthcoming album, 'Clockwork Angels'." Anderson added
that he worked with Peart to
"flesh out the epic story told over the course of the music,"
which involves "lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic
carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every
aspect of daily life."
