The Zombies share second single off forthcoming album ‘Different Game’

Rock & Roll Hall of Famers The Zombies have released a brand new track ‘Love You While I Can’ on streaming services ahead of a full album CD, vinyl and digital release coming March 31st. 

'Love You While I Can' says Rod Argent, “is a love song, about when you have the sudden realisation that the relationship you’ve embarked on is going to develop into something special - you somehow know for sure that this time it’s for real - the one that could last for life! - and that without any question, and without even having to talk about it, you both share the feeling!!”

The Zombies began work on the album, titled ‘Different Game’, after their 2019 induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a USA tour with Beach Boys auteur Brian Wilson. The band, hoped to finish writing and recording the follow-up to their Billboard-charting 2015 album 'Still Got That Hunger' during a busy 2020 touring schedule, but COVID-19 had other plans for them. As primary songwriter and producer Rod Argent relates, “the band was not content to record remotely.”   

“Making this album has been a joy from start to finish. Post-lockdown, we were absolutely determined to come together and record in as ‘live’ a way as we could - to capture that magical, fleeting quality of energy and immediacy of performance.” 

The album cover for ‘Different Game’ exemplifies the independent and hard-working spirit of a band that refuses to rest on the laurels of a 6-decade career, and comes from a photo taken by Rod Argent during a touring misadventure in the Arizona desert this past Summer.  Singer Colin Blunstone explains: “We were traveling from Southern California to Tucson, when our tour van’s engine suddenly caught fire!  We spent about 5 hours stranded in the remote Arizona desert, but thanks to our intrepid team and crew, we were rescued and made it to our next show!  It was a harrowing experience, but also beautiful and surreal.” 

The album is being released in advance of a new feature documentary entitled ‘Hung Up On A Dream’, directed by musician and filmmaker Robert Schwartzman, and co-produced by Schwartzman’s Utopia Films, The Ranch Productions, and Tom Hanks’ Playtone, slated for release later in 2023.   

This album is what the current-day Zombies were meant to make. It has the vintage qualities that made them stand out in the 1960’s, yet still sounds modern, and reflects their continued development as songwriters and musicians. Now, The Zombies have dropped their second single off forthcoming album ‘Different Game’. Listen to both ‘Dropped Reeling & Stupid’ and the brand new ‘Love You While I Can’ HERE.
