Today, Sweet Celebrate The Release ‘Set Me Free’ Single And Official Music Video

 

Sweet featuring original guitarist Andy Scott, have today released their new single ‘Set Me Free‘.  The new single is taken from the band’s current album ‘Isolation Boulevard‘, and can be pre-saved Here.

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.

It’s a reworking of Sweet’s 1975 album multi-million selling ‘Desolation Boulevard‘. The latest single ‘Set Me Free‘ is taken from the album, and although it is one of the most covered songs in the band’s repertoire, this marks the first time Sweet has released it as an official single.

Over the years, the song has been covered by many rock artists including Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe, 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.
