John Lodge Releases New Single, “In These Crazy Times”

John Lodge: In These Crazy TimesMoody Blues vocalist and bassist John Lodge has just released a new single called “In These Crazy Times (Isolation Mix)”, which was recorded during his ninety days in quarantine. As such, Lodge recorded just about all of the parts on the song with the exception of lead guitar by his son Kristian and backing vocals by his wife Kristen and Yes’s Jon Davison.

Though we’re all in a situation we’re trying to navigate for the first time, it reminds Lodge of the early days with The Moody Blues. “In 1967 “The Moody Blues” recorded Days of Future Passed, and we were in the studio in lockdown 24 hours a day creating an album that changed my life,” he says. “Being in lockdown now reminds me of the creativity and solitude that took place during that period of my life. So I have taken the opportunity, given by this lockdown period, to write and record a new song about these difficult days, days that stretched into weeks and months.”

The song is now streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer.
