SAMMY HAGAR AND THE WABOS's new album, entitled "Livin' It Up", is available for streaming in its entirety at Rhino.com.
"Livin' It Up" is scheduled for release on July 25 via Rhino Records.
In a recent interview with Billboard.com, Hagar said about the upcoming CD, "'Livin' it Up" is really a lifestyle record. It's not a metal record at all. I would say it's more American country rock than heavy metal rock, which is the type of music I've always played from MONTROSE through VAN HALEN. My intention was to just make a real honest record."
Written over the past year at his home in Cabo San Lucas, the album features original songs such as "One Sip and You'll Surrender" and "The Way We Live", as well as a rocking honky-tonk cover of TOBY KEITH's "I Love This Bar" and his version of the STAPLE SINGERS' "I'll Take You There", according to Billboard.com.
"Livin' It Up" track listing:
01. Sam I Am
02. Livin' on a Coastline
04. The Way We Live
05. I Love This Bar
06. One Sip
07. Rainy Day Women
