UK rockers The Struts brought in guitarist Phil Collen and singer Joe Elliott of American band Def Leppard fame to join them in a raucous new track called “I Hate How Much I Want You” from their upcoming album “Strange Days”, which is set for release October 16th via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada.
Over the last couple of months, the band has released two other tracks from this new album. More information about that below.
Per the official press release –
The Struts and Robbie Williams release the video for their stunning new single “Strange Days” today. Shot by Chris Applebaum, the clip was filmed in multiple locations around Southern California. “Strange Days” is the second song to be released from the band’s upcoming album by the same name, which is set for release October 16th via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
“Strange Days” follows the release of the track “Another Hit of Showmanship,” which features Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes and centers on another poignant vocal performance from Spiller, who deftly channels the tension between giving in to temptation and rising above your demons. StrangeDays 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.”
The StrangeDays 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 sophmore 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.
