Rush Release Lyric Video For 'Headlong Flight'

Legendary Canadian progressive rock band Rush released the lyric video for a new song off their upcoming album, Clockwork Angels.

“Headlong Flight,” available for stream earlier this week via rollingstone.com, clocks in at nearly seven and a half minutes, with the video lending an old-school TV vibe to it.

“‘Headlong Flight’ was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end,” frontman Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone. “Alex [Lifeson] and I had blast jamming in my home studio one day before the second leg of the Time Machine tour, and I did not revisit that jam until a year later.

“Alex and I assembled the song to be an instrumental and its original title was ‘Take That Lampshade Off Yo Head!,” but once we saw the lyrics Neil [Peart] had written, I knew that the spirit of the lyrics matched the instrumental perfectly and it was just a matter of making them fit and writing the melodies.”
