Exclusive premiere: Status Quo – Bula Quo!
Classic Rock is proud to premiere the new double album from Status Quo. Hear Bula Quo! in full below.
It was inspired by Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt’s experiences while shooting upcoming the comedy action movie of the same name. It tells the story of their trip to Fiji and how a journey that started with guitars ends up with guns. It receives its premiere in London on July 1 and goes on general release four days later.
Rossi admits they didn’t set out to make an album round the movie. “We couldn’t help but be inspired by our surroundings,” he explains. “We had no plans to write – it just happened.”
Disc One contains nine songs taken from the Bula Quo! soundtrack, while Disc Two features ten exclusively reworked or live recordings.
It’s released on Monday, June 10 and it’s available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. Find out more. Quo will tour the UK with special guests 10cc in December – dates below.
