To coincide with the announcement, Billboard yesterday premiered the brand-new single ‘Long Time Coming’ raving it’s, “a crunchy hard rocker driven by a Kinks-flavored riff, [and] is a bit of a one-song tribute to Cheap Trick's influential forebears.”
WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT! – which follows last year’s acclaimed BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO – is available for pre-order now via Cheap Trick’s PledgeMusic campaign. Exclusive bundles include vinyl, signed guitars, personalised video messages, memorabilia from the band and more.
Beginning Friday, May 5th, the album will be available for pre-order through all digital retailers and will be accompanied by two instant downloads: the electrifying first single, ‘Long Time Coming’ and album highlight ‘Lolita’. Additional tracks will be available in the weeks leading up to the album’s release. Explore Cheap Trick’s PledgeMusic campaign here: http://smarturl.it/CTPledge.
Cheap Trick's 18th studio album, WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT! was co-produced by the band and their longtime collaborator, GRAMMY® Award winner Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball). The album will be available in Standard and Deluxe Editions, with the latter including three additional bonus tracks, among them a kaleidoscopic cover of The Move’s ‘Blackberry Way’.
