Legendary Glam Rockers SWEET featuring original guitarist Andy Scott, have released their new single “Set Me Free”. the new single is taken from the band’s new lockdown album “Isolation Boulevard” which is available on digital and vinyl. The CD is available to pre-order.
Sweet have also released the official “Set Me Free” music video that can be viewed HERE.
Andy Scott is available for interview to talk about the new single and album, plus Sweet’s rescheduled November and December 2021 UK Tour.
“Isolation Boulevard” features all the Sweet’s classic hit singles and was recorded with the new line-up during lockdowns between September and October 2020.
“Isolation Boulevard” is a reworking of Sweet’s 1975 multi-million selling album “Desolation Boulevard”. The new single, a re-recorded version of “Set Me Free”, is taken from the “Isolation Boulevard” album. Hailed by many as one of the most covered songs in Sweet’s repertoire, this marks the first time the band has released it as an official single.
Over the years, the song has been covered by many rock artists including Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) and Saxon.
“Recording an album separately in different locations throws up a myriad of technical problems,” says Andy Scott. “It’s impossible for everyone to play at the same time, so all parts are performed the “old” way and then data transferred back to base camp where the magical digital stuff takes over.”
Continues Andy, “Sweet would usually record all together in the studio with a performance rather than individually but the pandemic dictated the ways and means. The result is a mind-blowing set of tracks, all the hits and a barrage of heavy-duty glam rock.”
