Smith / Kotzen – Listen to the third single ‘Running’

Adrian Smith and Richie Kotzen have today unleashed ‘Running’, the third single from their album ‘Smith/Kotzen’, due out 26 March 2021.

‘Running’ is the first song their pair worked on when planning their collaboration and Kotzen has also hinted that we will get to see the them play live sometime in the future.

Adrian Smith told MetalTalk: “It is a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we are excited to get it out there ahead of the album release.

“We have both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together.”

Kotzen said: ‘’Running’ was the first song Adrian and I worked on. Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff which lead me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition.

“‘Running’ is surely one of my top three favourites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live.”
