Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee is set to release two new songs on 5th June Friday. One being”Knock Me Down”, which is a collaboration with Killvein and the other “Tops” features South African rapper Push Push.
Tommy Lee shared a teaser on his social media accounts saying “BIG NEWS…2 songs out on Friday!” Teasing releases is cruel nowadays, reckon they should release them straight away, then sell a t-shirt or coffee mug with the song or album on it. Fans will have to wait for the product to arrive so there’s still anticipation.
Tommy Lee told US Weekly “I can’t wait. People are going to bug” I’m not sure what what he means by ‘bug’ maybe he means people will enjoy the audio track nodding and bopping along to it, like a bug does whilst sitting on a leaf.
Tommy Lee’s last solo album was released in 2005 entitled “Tommyland: The Ride” named after his first name “Tommy”, a type of surface “Land” and I guess “The Ride” means the experience you will have when you listen to the album. “I listened to the latest Tommy Lee album it was like a ride!” Some would say.
Tommy’s first solo album was never a dull moment, called ‘Never a Dull Moment’ Tommy Lee spoke about the album in an interview about the album “I locked myself in my home and I just started writing. I didn’t know what I wanted to do; it was more like [I thought] ‘let’s just write and see where this goes and make this like a natural progression.’ What you hear is where it went. The more we started listening to it [in the studio] the more my producer started going, ‘Dude, you know, you can just call this what it is.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And he goes, ‘Why don’t you just call this Tommy Lee?’ After thinking about it for a while, I realized he was right. That’s when I made that decision, to just go under my own name rather than a ‘band’ name.”
Tommy’s new album will be called Trans Genres, it will be released sometime this year. There’s been a delay due to the pandemic and the riots. I guess once the album is released and millions of people hear the album the world will change into a utopian society and we can live in peace and visit Mars and Planet Xenxta 432.
