Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson streams new song Cherry Lopez Lullaby

Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson is streaming a new instrumental entitled “Cherry Lopez Lullaby.”

“This was written during the mix session of ‘Clockwork Angels’ while in LA for months starting early 2012,” explains Lifeson. “I did an interview with High Times and the interviewer brought along a friend, an esteemed grower who provided a sample of his creation named Cherry Lopez. Because I was on an EST body clock, I was up most mornings @ 5:00 AM. I'd order coffee, sit on my hotel room balcony, read the paper and wake and bake then dive into making some fun sounds while the city was waking up.

“I had some borrowed acoustic and electric guitars for the duration, thankfully, as sitting around waiting to go to the studio was tedious and certainly, a bowl of Cherry kept my appetite healthy.”

The latest tune from the Rush guitarist follows the release earlier this year his first new music in close to a decade; issued in sync with the launch of a new signature guitar line with Epiphone, Lifeson debuting two brand new songs: "Kabul Blues" and "Spy House."

Rush performed their final concert in Los Angeles in 2015; drummer Neil Peart passed away in January of 2020 at the age of 67 after a three-and-a-half year battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer, Glioblastoma.
