TAKEN FROM THE ALBUM ‘STRANGE DAYS’ – RELEASED ON OCTOBER 16TH – VIA INTERSCOPE/POLYDOR
Rock At Night’s take: A long-time fan & follower of The Struts, we wondered if they could still ‘wow’ us. Yes, indeed! “Strange Days” is the perfect song for this strange, strange, year 2020. The Struts have nailed it. A great statement, melody, and of course, it’s a win-win with Robbie Williams!
The Struts and Robbie Williams have released the video for their stunning new single ‘Strange Days’. Shot by Chris Applebaum, the clip was filmed in multiple locations around Southern California. ‘Strange Days’ premiered globally on Radio 2 and is the second song to be released from the band’s upcoming album of the same name, which is set for release October 16th via Interscope Records/Polydor.
Strange Days finds The Struts joining forces with not only Robbie Williams and Albert Hammond Jr, but also Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen on the hip-shaking stomper ‘I Hate How Much I Want You’ and Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello on ‘Wild Child’. Pre-order Strange Days HERE.
The Strange Days album came to life over the course of a charmed and frenzied burst of creativity this spring. After getting tested for COVID-19, the band all moved into the Los Angeles home of Jon Levine, a producer who worked extensively on their acclaimed second album YOUNG & DANGEROUS. Within just ten days of couch-crashing at Levine’s house, The Struts had laid down nine original tracks alongside their masterful cover of a KISS B-side.
‘Strange Days’ follows the release of the track ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’, which features Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes and centres on another poignant vocal performance from Spiller, who deftly channels the tension between giving in to temptation and rising above your demons.
