Motley Crue Releases ‘Sex’ For 24 Hour Free Download
It’s been a long while since we’ve heard Motley Crue get back together for a new album, too long some would say. But fear not, fans-o-crue. The boys were back together in February in what Tommy Lee calls “the Atrium” — his own personal studio located in Calabasas, Calif. — in order to record their newest track, ‘Sex’.
‘Sex’ is the first Crue studio track we’ve been introduced to since the 2008 release of ‘Saints Of Los Angeles.’ And here’s the good news: the band is releasing the song for a free download via their website… but only for 24 hours, so get going! We’ve already showed you the preview, now get the whole thing!
In speaking with VH1 Radio Network’s Dave Basner back in March, the Crue’s bassist and lead songwriter Nikki Sixx spoke of the new track, saying, ‘It sounds very much like it’s off of the first record. And that was definitely on purpose. I’ve been writing very simple riffs for the last year and focusing on how these riffs would work for Vince [Neil], basically, and took it in the studio with Tommy and Mick [Mars] and the thing just came alive.
Also, in speaking of ‘Sex’, however, this time too AOL’s Noisecreep, Tommy Lee said, ‘I think Nikki is partially right. It’s got a retro Crue kind of vibe to it — a simplistic riff. But I also think the song has a modern sound to it. There’s some cool analog synths in it and a beat that is really funky and modern. Overall, I think that ‘Sex’ sounds like 2012 and that makes me really happy.’
The famous drummer added, “At the end of the day, it’s a great summertime song that’s going to have everybody screaming along to it on this upcoming tour.” That’s right, the upcoming tour! Beginning July 20, Motley Crue will be towing along side famed rockers and make-up wearers Kiss.
