Canada’s Blu Bones return with brand new single ‘She’s Got A Way With Love’

London Ontario rockers Blu Bones have just sent shockwaves throughout the music world reemerging from a 25 year sabbatical with an infectious little ear worm entitled She’s Got A Way With Love.

Lead singer Gord Prior recently spoke with Classic Rock 98.1’s Kate Wright about what motivated the group’s return where he credits the combination of fans constantly asking if there would ever be a chance of a Blu Bones reunion with the pandemic lock down being the other driving factor behind providing the world with some much needed positivity in these unique times.

Gord also mentioned that while a full length album currently isn’t in the cards the guys hope to do more tracks moving forward.

As a fan of Blu Bones tremendously underrated debut album Sink, She’s Got A Way With Love doesn’t quite have the grungy angst that I fell in love with however for a group of musicians that have been in the game for well over two decades I’m digging the psychedelic undertones masterfully clashing with some brilliant 1970s power pop hooks.

Blu Bones are lead vocalist Gord Prior, guitarist Boris Novosel, bassist Barry Donaghy, drummer Steve Thomas and Ray Coburn on keyboards.

Steve Augeri – Solo Album Update

Posted via his social media:

Hey gang, I’m happy and thankful to say that the writing and recording process has been moving along better than expected on my first official full solo offering. Half the album’s gone on to the mixing stage. It’s akin to sending your kids off to college. An absolute degree of separation anxiety going on there but I know I’m in the best of hands, that is the hands of Steve Mandile 🙂 I’m very thankful to have collaborated with a couple of Steve Augeri Band alumni Adam Holland and Craig Pullman on a handful of songs, one to two with Neal and Jon and remainder, a few ambitious and left of center than one might expect from yours truly. I’lll leave it at that. Wishing you all a great safe and healthy day and I’ll be back with any and all updates when I have something to share. – Steve Augeri

Elton John Releases “Jewel Box” With Unreleased “I Can’t Go On Living Without You”

Released Nov. 13, 2020

“I Can’t Go On Living Without You” has been unveiled to celebrate the release of Elton John’s Jewel Box, released today via UMC / EMI. Multiple GRAMMY winner Mark ‘Spike’ Stent (Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber) has given the unreleased 1968 mix – one of the many gems of Jewel Box – a 2020 polish in time to celebrate one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year.

Now it’s time to hear the Elton original for the first time. ‘I Can’t Go On Living Without You’ is three fabulous minutes of the zingy easy listening pop of the day, with a catchy chorus and a memorable hook.

The track is accompanied by a new lyric video from Ladybug Studios where, like the track itself, the song’s swingin’ 60s vintage will be given a fresh and contemporary twist. It features images of Elton and Bernie from the period.

Jewel Box is available now as deluxe 8CD and 9LP box sets, standalone 4LP, 3LP and 2LP breakouts. On streaming services we’re celebrating its wealth of rarities, deep cuts and B-sides via a series of regular three-song batches, culminating with the complete ‘Jewel Box’ appearing, in full, in March for Elton’s 75th birthday.
