Introduced by the single ‘Johnny and Mary,' Palmer's sixth solo album had a rockier, more new wave feel than what had gone before.
The legendary artist will perform his new record, 'Free' in its entirety at The Barbican Centre on Thursday, 21 November.
In September 1979, the band played their first US concerts with Kenney Jones behind the drumkit.
Speaking about Free earlier this summer, Iggy Pop described it as “an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice”.
The new track is taken from the star's new album, 'Free', set for release on 6 September.
The sparse new track is taken from the star’s upcoming solo album Free, which is due out on 6 September via Loma Vista.
By the late 1970s, Palmer’s smooth, sophisticated and brilliantly-produced blue-eyed soul-rock was becoming more and more established.
Some great 1960s music went missing in action in a decade when tens of thousands of singles were released each year.
The blues-rock quartet made a UK album chart breakthrough in their banner month of June 1970.
His talents as a flute, saxophone and keyboard player, and sometime writer, were also much employed in numerous other settings.

There was new life in 1992 for Palmer's signature song, written by former Free member Andy Fraser and first heard on 1978's Double Fun.
The 1978 album that included 'Every Kinda People' had another A-list of Palmer collaborators.
The band's sixth studio album included the mighty 'Wishing Well' and was a strange but memorable post script to their time together.
The hit single 'All Right Now' and album 'Fire and Water' led Free to the follow-up LP 'Highway,' which made its UK chart debut on 23 January 1971.
