Cheap Trick have released a rousing new song entitled ‘The Summer Looks Good on You’ through Big Machine. You ca hear it below.
The legendary power-pop band’s new track opens with a blast of Queen-like vocal harmonies before settling into a determined hard-rock riff. “Yellow and beige shines through the haze as the holidays wait for you,” frontman Robin Zander sings. “Let’s call it a day; I’ll take you away – the summer looks good on you.” Dissonant strings swoop in on the bridge, which climaxes with heavy bass runs and a blistering guitar solo from Rick Nielsen.
‘The Summer Looks Good on You’ is the lead single from Cheap Trick’s upcoming 20th album, due out later this year. Robin Zander, guitarist Rick Nielsen and bassist Tom Petersson co-wrote the single with frequent producer Julian Raymond, who worked on the band’s three most recent LP, 2016’s Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello and 2017’s We’re All Alright! and Christmas Christmas.
While the band has yet to detail the record’s track list, Rick Nielsen recently told Buzz magazine that they’ve racked up a lot of studio time for the project. “We have about 10 songs down now, so it is coming along,” he said. “I will call you first when the new album is ready!”
Cheap Trick embarked on their massive ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time’ North American Tour yesterday in Irvine, California. As uDiscover Music recently reported, the 30-date jaunt with Poison will run throughout May and June before wrapping with a show at the Hard Rock Event Centre in Hollywood, Florida.
In addition, Cheap Trick have select shows booked alongside Lynyrd Skynyrd and Def Leppard/Journey throughout the summer. They later appear as special guests on Def Leppard’s UK and Ireland tour which kicks off with a show at the 3 Arena in Dublin on 1 December and winds down at London’s Wembley Arena on 18 December.
