Cheap Trick Inks Recording Deal With BMG, New Album In The Can


Cheap Trick has a new record label and a new album in the can. Lead singer Robin Zander appeared on AXS TV's At Home And Social, and broke the news about the new music: ["We have an album that's already done and it's ready to go that has put on hold because of the virus. We're very excited about it. We just, we signed a deal with BMG, and we'll see what happens. Y'know, 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. And it's, it's something I think is our lifeblood. It keeps us going."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . keeps us going)

Cheap Trick guitarist and main songwriter, Rick Nielsen told us that in the simplest terms, Cheap Trick was built to write, record, and perform: ["When there's a project, there a reason to do stuff. Y'know, we don't really do many things for other groups — y'know, they don't call us and say — 'you want this or that?' I mean, I've done — or we've done some stuff for, y'know, TV shows, and movie soundtracks, and commercials, and we're not huge stars. Makin' records is, like, one of the ambitions we always had. I don't think that desire has never gone away."] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC: . . . ever gone away)
