Canadian recording artist Matt Hughes is back with a new single. After 2 years of lock downs, Matt has been busy writing and recording the follow up to his 2018 EP ‘Discovery’ and has now dropped his new single, which is a powerhouse version of the Sammy Hagar classic ‘Heavy Metal’ from the 1981 film and is now available on all streaming services. For this track, Matt recruited the talents of Ace Frehley and Black Swan drummer Matt Starr, Lynch Mob and Dokken bassist Sean McNabb on bass guitar and backing vocals, Jimmy Kimmel Live House Band guitarist Toshi Yanagi on rhythm and lead guitar with Matt on rhythm guitar and lead vocals. ‘I was talking with Matt Starr and he helped spark the idea of doing a cover song and I’ve always loved the movie and this track so I decided to do a version of it with some special guest musicians’. Each member recorded their parts remotely and the track was then put together and mixed by producer L. Stuart Young and mastered by Harry Hess of Harem Scarem at HBomb Mastering in Toronto. This track will also be included as a bonus ‘digital only’ track on Matt’s upcoming album entitled ‘Revolution’ which will be released early 2023.
