Sammy Hagar & The Circle Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of David Bowie’s “Heroes”

Sammy Hagar & The Circle have premiered a new video for their cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Lockdown 2020” and all proceeds from it will be donated to food banks nationwide. Hagar commented:

“David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ is one of my favorite songs ever, and a chance to tip our hat to all those frontline workers on every level from the grocery stores, to the policeman and firefighters, doctors etc. that put their own lives at risk & do their jobs to help others. For us it kind of sums up 2020, the whole year. And to release it so close to David Bowie’s birthday just makes it that more special.”

Brandon Boyd (Incubus) Digitally Releases “Stem To The Rose” From His Sons Of The Sea Project

Brandon Boyd (Incubus) has officially released “Stem To The Rose” from his Sons Of The Sea project in digital outlets. He said the following about that:

“It took me a few years but my Sons of the Sea track ‘Stem to the Rose’ is finally up on all streaming platforms. My heart and imagination will likely be forever captivated by @incubusofficial but in our occasional interims I wander off into solo territory and put out records. Sons of the Sea is my side hustle with longtime collaborator Brendan O’Brien; he and I wrote this song together a few years back for a documentary entitled ‘Becoming Bulletproof’. It’s a beautiful film you can stream tonight if you’d like to. I hope you enjoy this song and hopefully it’ll make you smile amongst these collective growing pains we all seem to be experiencing. #wherewouldibewithoutyou”
