AUDIO: Rush – Clockwork Angels

Rush’s new album, “Clockwork Angels,” hits stores next Tuesday, June 12.

The thematic project has been billed as following the story of a young man’s quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The tale features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, an exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life.

Rush offered up two tracks – “Caravan” and “BU2B” – in 2010 as a work-in-progres preview of the new project before the group headed out on their extensive Time Machine tour.

The album’s first single, “Headlong Flight,” was released recently and, now, the band has offered up a full-length preview of the album’s title track, which clocks in at seven and half minutes.
