The first track off of Boston‘s sixth studio album, ‘Life, Love & Hope’ (pre-order the album here), has just surfaced online.
“Heaven On Earth” has been named as the album’s first single, with reports saying promotional single copies have already been issued to radio stations in the UK.
For those Boston fans who followed along as the band transitioned into a more significant distortion-fueled sound during the ‘Walk On’ era, then you are in luck.
The new song begins with the instantly recognizable guitar playing of Tom Scholz, before transitioning into a traditional Boston-sounding track with a memorable chorus and strong vocal melodies.
The version of the song which surfaced online still seemed a little too short for our tastes: the guitar intro could have been longer, and the vocal melodies in the pre-chorus seem to cut off a little too suddenly. Perhaps that is because it is the single edit, and the full version will appear on the actual album when it is released early this December.
Nonetheless, this new track is a promising first glance as to what fans can expect to hear from Boston in 2013. You can listen to “Heaven On Earth” via the video player below.
