This week Canadian rock legends Rush released a new animated video for “The Spirit of Radio.” The video features references to real radio stations and real DJs that helped Rush throughout their career.
The nostalgic clip, like the song, celebrates the power of radio broadcast, opening in Italy with Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of radio, before jumping over to Canada, where the band members are recording the track at Le Studio in Quebec.
The video concludes with the image of an empty drumkit followed by the message, “In memory of our brother Neil Peart” who died in January at age 67.

Rush recently issued a remastered, expanded edition of the album Permanent Waves in 4 formats, including a Super Deluxe Edition with live bonus cuts, a hardcover book with previously unreleased photos, revamped artwork, a 12,000-word essay and other extras.
