Sammy Hagar & The Circle released a lyric video today (Jan. 28) for “Trust Fund Baby.” The supergroup is fronted by Hagar and the Red Rocker is joined by his former Van Halen bandmate Michael Anthony on bass, Jason Bonham on drums and Vic Johnson on guitar.
“Trust Fund Baby” presents Hagar & The Circle at their classic rock best. The track is the lead single from the group’s highly-anticipated album, Space Between, which is due to drop on May 10 via BMG.
Classic rock fans craving wailing, guitar-driven distortion get plenty of it in this amped-up track about a wild, trust fund baby who is on a self-destructive fast train filled with cocaine, alcohol and sex. The band makes it clear in the explosive, repeat refrain that the “Girl gets what she wants.”
Space Between will notably contain all original songs. In an interview with Broward Palm Beach New Times earlier this year, Hagar said the theme for the album will be focused on how greed, as opposed to just the love of money is a huge problem. He also suggested Space Between might be his last record and he really hopes to get a Grammy for it.
“That’s my bucket list: to have one more credible musical experience in my life,” Hagar said. “I think I did it, and I hope it’s as good as I think it is. I’ve been double-parked in the rock 'n' roll business for 40 years, and I want a stamp on my validation so I don’t have to pay to get out.”
Space Between will be a follow up to The Circle’s 2015 album At Your Service. Hagar had previously teased a clip of “Trust Fund Baby” on Instagram, prior to its release. Hagar charged his followers to “play it on whatever system suits you and crank it up,” adding “it f**kng rocks like the rest of the album!” (See his post below).
“Trust Fund Baby” is currently available to purchase and stream on multiple digital platforms. Sammy Hagar & The Circle will tour to support the record in 2019. The group will reveal 2019 tour dates and the Space Between track list on Feb. 4, Rolling Stone reports.
Hagar spoke of the album in his end of the year message to his fans, which he posted on YouTube last December. He also teased an exciting season four launch of AXS TV’s original series “Rock & Roll Road Trip,” naming Willie Nelson, Rick Springfield and Rob Krieger as some of his upcoming famous guests.
