Single + Video I Sweet – Set Me Free
New Single out March 5, 2021
Set Me Free is a re-recorded version of the 70’s classic and is taken from Sweet’s new album ‘Isolation Boulevard’. The album features lockdown re-recordings of the original songs that appeared on the U.S. edition of the band’s 1975 album ‘Desolation Boulevard’.
‘Isolation Boulevard’ features all the Sweet’s classic hit singles and was recorded with the new line-up during lockdowns between September and October 2020.
Over the years, “Set Me Free” has been covered by the likes of Saxon, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol).
“Recording an album separately in different locations throws up a myriad of technical problems,” says Andy Scott. “It’s impossible for everyone to play at the same time, so all parts are performed the “old” way and then data transferred back to base camp where the magical digital stuff takes over.”
Continues Andy, “Sweet would usually record all together in the studio with a performance rather than individually but the pandemic dictated the ways and means.
The result is a mind-blowing set of tracks, all the hits and a barrage of heavy-duty glam rock.”
