Status Quo have released a video for their brand new single Backbone.
It’s the title track from Quo’s upcoming studio album, which will launch on September 6 through earMUSIC/Edel.
The record will be the band’s first without Rick Parfitt, who died on Christmas Eve 2016, with all the songs recorded at Francis Rossi’s studio in late 2018/early 2019.
Speaking about the album, Rossi said: “This new material had to be seriously good. Quo have achieved so much and meant so much to too many people for the quality to slip now.
“Also, let’s face it, things have changed and we’re an easier target than ever. Losing Rick was hard to bear but, through Richie Malone, who was inspired to pick up a guitar by him, we can not only keep going but actually pick up the pace.
“The energy that he and drummer Leon Cave bring to Quo can’t be underestimated. I wasn’t sure I had another album in me but I couldn’t be more proud of Backbone.”
He added: “I hope the fans love it, but you can’t please everyone and I’m not going to start trying to now.”
Along with what will be Quo’s 33rd studio album, they’ll also perform at BBC Radio 2’s Festival In A Day, which will take place at London’s Hyde Park on Sunday, September 15.
