Uriah Heep releases ‘Hurricane’

Song is latest from 25th studio album

British hard rock legends and progenators Uriah Heep have shared “Hurricane” as the second single from their forthcoming 25th studio album, Chaos & Colour, set for release January 27th via Silver Lining Music. The anthemic and epic track carries an underlying historical and mythological theme.

“Simon (Pinto) and I wrote the song about how our ancestors looked at storms and how these can be interpreted as being messages from the Gods… Their power is awesome and a great inspiration for a rocking track!” explains co-writer and drummer Russell Gilbrook.

“Music and lyrics are of paramount importance to me… I used to hate those ‘80s MTV million dollar videos as they created such a visual image that all calls to imagination were lost because you didn’t have to think. I think the power of music and lyrics are that they do certain things to certain people,” founding member Mick Box adds.

Chaos & Colour is an album which bristles with explosive classic rock guitars, supreme harmonies, and Heep’s famously generous keyboard foundation. “One Nation, One Sun” is a journey of soaring balladic contemplation, “Fly Like An Eagle” takes the listener on a journey of meditation, whilst “Closer To Your Dreams” is a battle cry for all rockers to get out there and do it, with Shaw imploring that “So many have tried but slipped away/Now it’s time for you to have your say.”
