Bryan Adams Releases New Single Featuring Comedian John Cleese


Bryan Adams has released another new track “Kick Ass” which features comic legend John Cleese and is included on the Canadian singer’s upcoming album “So Happy It Hurts”.

Kick Ass was also co written by Robert “Mutt” John Lange who had previously worked with Adams on 1991’s Waking Up The Neighbours and 1996’s 18 Till I Die. He has co written other tracks with Adams over the years.

This track also sees Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese deliver a spoken word introduction, which “sums up the song” according to Adams.

“not enough rock and roll in the world…. end of!”

“Kick Ass begins with a John Cleese introductory sermon which sums up the song”, Adams said.

He also added, “There’s not enough rock and roll in the world… end of! More guitars, more drums, join hands… let’s rock”.

So Happy It Hurts will be Brian Adams’ 15th studio album. Arriving on 11 March 2022, this album will be available on CD, Vinyl and digital formats. It will also come out on a deluxe CD and hardbound book.

Speaking at a press release about the record Adams said, “The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away”. 

He added, “Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go. The title song ‘So Happy It Hurts’ is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road. The album of the same name touches on many of the ephemeral things in life that are really the secret to happiness and, most importantly, human connection”.
