Also announces Steinman-written new album
Meat Loaf has shared a new track titled ‘Going All The Way’. Written by ‘Bat Out of Hell’ songwriter Jim Steinman, the song features additional vocals by Ellen Foley and Karla DeVito.
‘Going All The Way’ is the first teaser of upcoming album ‘Braver Than We Are’ which is set to features 10 never-before-released Steinman compositions.
Set for release on September 16, the album is the fourth release from Meat Loaf that features work solely written by Steinman. According to Rolling Stone, the songwriter also had final approval on the mix and presentation of the songs before they were deemed finished.
Speaking in a statement, Meat Loaf said: “It’s a tribute to Jim Steinman really. It’s a tribute to both of us and our work together.” Former Anthrax guitarist Paul Crook – who produced Meat Loaf’s last album, 2012’s ‘Hell in a Handbasket’ – also plays guitar on ‘Braver Than We Are’.
Meat Loaf is “stable” after he collapsed on stage during a gig in Canada on Thursday night (June 16).
The US singer – real name Marvin Lee Aday – was playing a concert in Edmonton, Alberta when the incident occurred. He had previously cancelled shows in Moose Jaw and Calgary earlier in the week due to illness. Meat Loaf is now “stable and in good condition,” the singer’s representative has said, according to Rolling Stone.
