Bush Premiere New Song “Heavy Is The Ocean”

Bush have premiered a new song titled “Heavy Is The Ocean.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Art Of Survival,” which will be released on October 7. Frontman Gavin Rossdale says when he first heard the riff he said: “Oh Lord, this is going to open the record.” He also added:

“It really sets the tone and the gravitas of the album. I love the power of the ocean. It’s mesmerizing to me. It feeds your soul. The song uses the imagery I love. At this point, I’m chained at the zoo of rock! So, I was, like, ‘Fuck it, I’m going to turn that puppy up. This one definitely represents ‘The Art Of Survival’.”

Bush Premiere New Song “More Than Machines”

Bush have premiered a new song titled “More Than Machines.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Art Of Survival,” which will be released on October 7.

Gavin Rossdale said the following about the song:

“This is an action-packed song with three really big topics. Off the bat, I don’t understand how anyone has the audacity to get involved or assume responsibility for women’s bodies. I wanted to reference that because it’s important to discuss. As much as the song is about the destruction of women’s rights, it’s about the destruction of the planet and the move for A.I. and a world of robots to replace us. It’s a topic we’ve heard since the fifties. I’m not here to teach anything though; my job is medieval like a town crier. I come into town with my elixirs and sing about it, so it hopefully goes out into the universe.”

He also added the following about the album:

“Instead of being mournful or self-piteous, this is about the success stories of humanity’s survival against the odds. People just find a way to push through. We’ve all obviously suffered in varying degrees. I think the nature of life is the art of survival. Everyone is being tested all of the time, but we find a way. In recent memory, we’ve made major strides and shown great resilience in the face of war, endless instances of racism, gender politics, a pandemic, and a melting pot of what we’ve experienced. For me, ‘The Art Of Survival’ encompasses all of this.”

“The Art Of Survival” Track Listing:

01. “Heavy Is The Ocean”
02. “Slow Me”
03. “More Than Machines”

During a recent interview at 94.5 FM The Buzz’s Buzzfest event, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale talked a bit about the band’s new album. He said the following:

Gavin Rossdale Has 18 Songs Written For New Bush Album

During a recent interview with May The Rock Be With You, Bush’s Gavin Rossdale offered an update on the band’s new album. The frontman says he currently has 18 songs written for the effort.

Rossdale said the following:

“I’ve just written 18 songs. And we start [in the studio] on Monday with a producer. [We’ll] rearrange — hopefully not too much — the stuff I’ve done. We choose the songs we’re gonna do. We either might use what I started, the tracks, or we might just try nixing them and doing it fresh. Each song will dictate that. But we go eight days [in the studio] before we come to Australia [for our tour with CHEAP TRICK and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, then we do [several days] of rehearsal. And then when we come back from Australia, we’ve got a few days off and then we go back to finish it. It should be done by May.”

He also added the following about the musical direction, which he says is similar to “The Kingdom”:

“It’s all like that. I like that. So I’ve kept it in that vein. That was the launchpad. That was it. I was, like, ‘I’m off.’ I’ve got maybe two ballady, two softer songs, slower songs, but they’re weird.

I’ve got a studio in my house now and it’s been such an amazing time. You have the tools at your fingertips now to make songs and make music. It’s just staggering. It’s so much fun.”
