Cheap Trick preview new single Light Up The Fire

Cheap Trick are sharing a preview of their forthcoming new single, “Light Up The Fire.”

The band will release the song on January 28; it is expected to be the lead track from a record they completed some time ago.

"We have an album that's already done and it's ready to go,” singer Robin Zander revealed recently. “It's been put on hold because of the virus. We're very excited about it. We signed a deal with BMG, and we'll see what happens”

“We've made a lot of records, and we just continue making records; for ourselves mostly, but also for our immediate fans that still cling to us. It's something, I think, that is our lifeblood; it keeps us going… And I believe that we still make quality records. If we didn't, we probably wouldn't do it anymore."

The Rockford, IL group’s 20th studio release follows a pair of 2017 records: "We're All Alright!" and "Christmas Christmas", and a series of singles: 2018’s “The Summer Looks Good On You”, a 2019 cover of John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth”, and last fall’s cover of the David Bowie classic “Rebel Rebel.”
