In a collaboration that's sure to have metal heads raising horns in salute, renowned vocalist Graham Bonnet and guitar maestro Marty Friedman have joined forces to breathe new life into the classic rock anthem "Since You Been Gone." This iconic single dates back to 1976, but its best-known version was recorded in 1979 by Bonnet during his tenure with Ritchie Blackmore's megalithic metal band Rainbow for their Down To Earth album. The song was a massive hit in the UK and a moderate one in the US, but it has since become a classic rock radio staple and one of Rainbow's most recognizable singles, even landing at #82 in VH1's "Hard Rock Songs Of All Time."

Now, 45 years later, Bonnet revisits the track that made him one of the most celebrated vocalists in rock history. Indeed, the song's success is simply inconceivable without Bonnet's bravado, powerhouse vocal performance. Incredibly, one listen to the new version shows that he hasn't lost an ounce of that vocal power. And stepping into Blackmore's mighty boots, guitar shredder Marty Friedman showcases his own undeniable talent, bringing both muscle and finesse to this new recording. Check out the new version of "Since You Been Gone," which is released today on all music platforms. (continue)

Frank Turner has shared a lyric video for "Letters," his latest track following "Girl From The Record Shop," "Do One" and "No Thank You For The Music" that is taken from the Friday, May 3 release of Turner's forthcoming album, Undefeated, the follow-up to his acclaimed #1 UK album, FTHC .

"'Letters' is a song that I've been working on for a long time," Turner says. "In some ways, I've been writing it since a genuine pen-friendship of mine dried up when I was a kid, when the mixtapes stopped coming through the post. It's a song about communication and its breakdown, about nostalgia for teenage romance, and about how reassessing those things as an adult can be the start of a healing process." (continue)
