The Struts And Paris Jackson Premiere “Low Key In Love” Music Video

The Struts and Paris Jackson have shared an official video for their recently released collaborative track “Low Key In Love.” You can check that out below:

The Struts frontman Luke Spiller commented:

“‘Low Key In Love’ was written after a date in Los Angeles at 70’s retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe.

When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set. Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her.

I’m convinced some things are just written in the stars. Bringing in Paris just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life. She is beautiful and brilliant. A star.”

Jackson added:

“I first heard of The Struts when I went to go see Mötley Crüe play their final set on New Year’s Eve night at Staples Center a few years ago. The boys opened up for them and I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was. I just remember turning to my friend and saying ‘who the fuck are these guys!?’ I was so blown away by their talent, their stage presence, and their energy.

It felt like I had time travelled and got to experience what rock’n’roll was at its prime, like with The Rolling Stones and Queen. I started listening to their music and would see them at events here and there, and we’ve always been pretty friendly online.

When Luke asked to work with me, it was an immediate yes. It’s been a privilege and an honour to sing on a song that I know means so much to Luke, and I’m grateful for the friendship that has sprung from such a lovely project. It’s unlike anything I have ever done or thought to do before, and I’m here for it!”

The Struts Premiere New Song “I Hate How Much I Want You” Featuring Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott And Phil Collen

The Struts have premiered a new song titled “I Hate How Much I Want You.” The track, which features Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, is from the band’s new album “Strange Days,” which will be released on October 16.

The Struts frontman Luke Spiller said the following:

“Phil and Joe really gave the song so much personality to the point it sounds like a timeless glam rock stomper that your mum sang along to in the 70’s.”

Elliott also commented:

“When Luke called me up … I said yes before I even knew what he wanted. I’ve been a massive fan of the band since I first heard them, so it’s not just a pleasure, it’s an honor to be part of this ‘born-in-Covid’ album, and what a song! Makes me feel like a kid again every time I hear it!”

Collen added:

“I loved the sound of The Struts since the moment I first heard them. So it gives me great pleasure that Luke and the boys asked myself and Joe to participate in some mutual, mischievous, explosive rowdiness.”

The Struts Premiere New Video For “Strange Days” Featuring Robbie Williams

The Struts To Release New Album “Strange Days” In October, Release Title Track

The Struts have revealed the details for their new album “Strange Days.” The effort will be released on October 16 and it will feature various guests including Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, and more. The title track, which features Robbie Williams, can be streamed below:

The Struts frontman Luke Spiller said the following about the new song:

“I was doing Quarantine Radio and Robbie hit me up out of the blue asking if we could talk. We ended up Face-Timing for about two hours the first time we’d ever spoken, talking about life and music and UFOs and everything else you can think of. I asked if he’d like to work together at some point, and while we were making the album he graciously let us come over and record him singing on his front porch.”

Williams continued:

“We did a vocal for a wonderful song that has been gifted my way. It’s been an absolute pleasure and a privilege to listen to this man sing. It’s great to be a fan of someone and then a part of this recording. It’s like having a hero here and I genuinely mean that.”

Spiller also added the following about the album

“It was so much fun to make a record this way instead of getting everything done in-between touring, working with multiple producers in multiple countries. We were all just burning to capture that excitement as much as we possibly could, and at times it felt like the songs were literally just falling from the sky. It was undoubtedly a magical ten days for us – and I hope when people hear the album, it gives them a taste of that magic too.”
