Boston release Christmas track
Boston have released the seasonal track God Rest Ye Metal Gentlemen (2013) as a digital single. Hear it below.
It’s Tom Scholz’s new take on a classic Christmas song, released as he celebrates latest album Life, Love & Hope reaching No.37 in the US chart.
The band’s long-awaited sixth record came out on December 3 and features the vocals of the late Brad Delp on three tracks, plus vocal contributions by Scholz himself, David Victor, Kimberley Dahme and Tommy DeCarlo.
Life, Love & Hope is the first Boston studio album since 2002′s Corporate America, but Scholz recently said it could have taken even longer to complete if he’d abandoned his beloved analogue recording equipment.
“Analogue gear is very responsive,” he explained. “You don’t to look at any numbers; you don’t have to input any data. Doing this in digital, it wouldn’t have been a 10-year project, it would have been a lifetime project.”
Meanwhile, a campaign to send AC/DC classic Highway To Hell to the top of the UK chart for Christmas gets into action next week. It’s currently being quoted third-favourite by bookies.
