Multi-Platinum Rock and Roll Hall of Famer SAMMY HAGAR will release a new album on Loud & Proud Records on NOVEMBER 18th. COSMIC UNIVERSAL FASHION marks the first official release for Loud & Proud, a Roadrunner Records imprint focusing on established artists. The title track and first single, “Cosmic Universal Fashion,” was written as an online collaboration between Hagar and a young Iraqi rock and roller by the name of Steven Lost. Released via Sammy’s website RedRocker.com and already a YouTube sensation, the very topical video was produced in the same spirit as the classic Van Halen video for “Right Now, ” and strikes a timely chord with November’s upcoming US Presidential election.
“We are light years ahead of where we thought we’d be in 1992, yet there will always be issues that continue to need our attention,” said Hagar. “With the upcoming election, global and national issues are at the forefront of everyone’s minds. ‘Cosmic Universal Fashion’ is not about supporting left or right, blue or red, but rather an attempt to appeal to people on a personal level to get involved.”
The track listing for Cosmic Universal Fashion is as follows:
Cosmic Universal Fashion
Fight For Your Right To Party
Switch On The Light
When The Sun Don’t Shine
I’m On A Roll
Loud & Proud President Tom Lipsky comments, “Great artists make great music. Sammy Hagar and Cosmic Universal Fashion prove that once again. I am thrilled that he is kicking off the partnership between Loud & Proud Records and Roadrunner Records.”
Globally known as the “Red Rocker” (after his anthem “Red” from 1977’s self-titled album), Hagar has led a storied career. From his first band Montrose through his years as frontman for Van Halen to his current status as solo artist with his band The Wabos, Hagar has seen over 60 million in record sales, won 2 Grammys, and along with Van Halen, won 3 MTV VMAs for “Right Now”. In addition to his musical endeavours, he is the founder of world-renowned Cabo Wabo tequila and has several charities which he supports. Hagar has several shows planned at his restaurant/nightclub in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in early October. In November, he is set to perform two shows in St. Louis, Missouri benefiting Blessings In A Backpack, a program whereby underprivileged children go home from school on Friday with a backpack full of food to help sustain their family.
