Smith/Kotzen, the collaborative project between Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith and renowned blues guitarist and The Winery Dogs frontman Richie Kotzen, have just released a lyric video for the new song "Running," the third single off their forthcoming debut album.

"Running" comes on the heels of "Taking My Chances" and "Scars" and is easily the heaviest of the three, supported by a burly, bench-pressing rhythm riff that plays especially nicely off the eased back chorus once it returns in the ensuing verses. Fans are treated to two complementary solos that showcase each guitar player's specialty — melody and blues.

"It's a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we're excited to get it out there ahead of the album release," Smith commented. "We've both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together."

Kotzen added, "'Running' was the first song Adrian and I worked on. Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff, which led me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition. 'Running' is surely one of my top three favorites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live."

So, there's some extra good news — plans to play live!

Smith/Kotzen, "Running" Lyrics

Тіmе, tіmе kеерѕ а rоllіng lіkе а rіvеr оf lіfе

Оh, gіvе mе fаіth, fаіth fоr thе dуіng
