Mr Big release video for Defying Gravity – the title track from their upcoming 9th studio album – out later this month
Mr Big have released a video for their song Defying Gravity.
It’s the title track from the band’s upcoming ninth studio album, which is set to arrive on July 21 via Frontiers Music.
The follow-up to 2014’s …The Stories We Could Tell sees vocalist Eric Martin, guitarist Paul Gilbert, bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Pat Torpey work once again with producer Kevin Elson.
Torpey was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2014, and, as a result, he was unable to perform on all album tracks. Touring drummer Matt Starr stepped in for the remaining songs on the album, with both drummers appearing in the new video.
Defying Gravity was recorded in just six days at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California – with Sheehan previously reporting that the quick-fire pace of the sessions gives the album an edge.
He said: “I like recording with a sense of urgency. Put a mic in front of us, roll tape, and that should sound like what you’re hearing from us live.
“When you can create that kind of pressure in the studio in a short amount of time, it makes for better songs – and better performances.”
Mr Big will head back out on the road in August for shows across Brazil. They’ll then return to Europe throughout October and November in support of Defying Gravity.
