Today, Canadian prog-rock-band SAGA release the second single from their upcoming album “Symmetry“, which is out on March 12th, 2021, on earMUSIC.
First released in 1981 on their album “Worlds Apart“, “Wind Him Up” quickly developed to be one of the most successful SAGA songs of all time and became what can be called an all time favourite among their audience worldwide.
With the release of “Symmetry“, SAGA are now heading on a completely new path and present this classic in a way never heard before. While preserving the heart of the song, the acoustic reinvention of “Wind Him Up” is shedding a new light on the fine arrangements for which this song is so well known and loved. The single is also accompanied by an official lyric video, an homage to the original video from 1982,
After going on tour in spring 2020, SAGA went straight into their home studios – the result: An album full of acoustic originals. “Symmetry” offers a unique listening experience by bundling complex and delicate acoustic arrangements with familiar melodies and sounds.
“Symmetry” gives the listener the possibility to explore and discover SAGA classics like “Wind Him Up“, “Say Goodbye To Hollywood” and “Tired World” once more and in a completely new way.
SAGA managed to create more than just new versions of their songs; they created a sonic world full of little details that invites the listeners to dive even deeper into the complex musical phenomenon that is SAGA.
“Symmetry” will be available as CD Jewelcase, 2LP Gatefold and Digital on March 12th, 2021 on earMUSIC.
