The 10-track LP is due in September. 30 and follows the band’s sophomore effort in 2021, Lockdown 2020. The video for “Funky Feng Shui” can be seen below.
“’Funky Feng Shui’ was the first song I started writing for Crazy Times record,” Hagar said in a statement. “We only recorded the two verses I had written for the first lockdown sessions. When we got to the studio, [producer] David Cobb loved this song, so we finished it and it became the record.”
He added: “The video was a blast because the director kept screaming, ‘Just remember there’s going to be a 50-foot woman stepping over you while you’re performing!’… I love this song and this video is funnier than a frog in a glass of milk. And I love you all. Enjoy!”
When the album was originally announced, Hagar said, “Before I stepped into the studio with Dave, he had told me that he wanted the best of my career on this record and he wasn’t going to let me out of that studio. until I gave it to him. So I said, ‘If you expect it from me, at my age, as many records as I’ve made, you’re going to have to push me.’
“Obviously, I dug in and just tried to write good strong songs, good lyrics, good melodies and not worry so much about the arrangements because he had it covered,” Hagar continued. “And he pushed and squeezed every single one of us. We went into the studio with seven songs and came out with 10.”
