Rush to release new song to radio next month

Tue, Apr 27, 2010@2:19PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 4/27@4:51PM: Spike of 94 WYSP in Philadelphia interviewed Geddy Lee this morning and Geddy said the following regarding the 2 new songs:

... It's hard, it's fresh. They're pretty hard hitting. They're pretty musically ambitious. One of the songs is longer... kind of a cross between Far Cry and Monkey Business. Another one is just the shorter kind of super energy song. ...

You can listen to it at this link. Thanks to Lerxster for transcribing the quote.

We've known for a while now that Rush has been working on new material and has about 6 new songs written. They recently finished recording 2 of these songs in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz, and Geddy revealed in a recent Rolling Stone interview that one is titled Caravan. We learned a couple of weeks ago that these 2 songs will be released as a special limited-edition CD single included with the Rush VIP pre-sale ticket packages being sold for their upcoming Time Machine Tour. In an interview with New York City's Q104.3 that aired this morning, Alex Lifeson stated the following regarding the 2 songs:

... we'll release one to radio in about a month and then the two of them will be released around the same time at the beginning of the tour ...

Alex doesn't mention how they will be released but we can reasonably assume that it would be either as an mp3 download or a CD single, or possibly both. You can listen to the interview at this link or by using the player below.
