Watch the Guess Who Perform Their New Single ‘Playin’ on the Radio': Video Premiere
Here's a sneak peek from the Guess Who's upcoming new album, The Future IS What It Used to Be. Watch the premiere of their railroad-themed video for the advance single "Playin' on the Radio" below.
"The Guess Who was a product of the radio generation," original drummer Garry Peterson tells Ultimate Classic Rock. "In my mind, 'Playin' on the Radio' celebrates what made me want to be a rock musician. The radio was where we heard all the latest songs by Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, the Beatles and on and on. The radio was our pop culture."
"Playin' on the Radio" also represents another milestone moment for the Guess Who, following stalwart classic-rock radio hits like "American Woman," "No Time," "These Eyes" and others. "This is my first video – at age 72," Peterson says. "Who knew?!"
The Future IS What It Used to Be is set for release on Sept. 14 via Cleopatra Records and features several notable guest stars – including Tommy Shaw of Styx, fellow founding Guess Who member Jim Kale and Michael Devin of Whitesnake. A complete track listing can be found below. The Future IS What It Used to Be is available for pre-ordering at the Cleopatra site.
Nigel Dick directed the video, which showcases the Guess Who's current lineup. Garry Peterson is joined by singer D#, guitarist Will E., keyboardist Leonard Shaw and bassist Rudy Sarzo.
"When they told me they were available for a day in Vegas and by chance I stumbled on this wonderful rail-yard full of old engines just up the road from the strip, I was in heaven – and up to my axles in dust!" Dick said in a news release. "It was a perfect day."
