The track features The Living End, and it’s one of 15 recordings that sees the former Cold Chisel frontman revisiting material from throughout his career. Other guests include Joe Bonamassa, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Diesel.

Barnes recently said of the record: “I didn’t bring in all these great artists to tell them what to do. I’m working with them because I’m learning from them. It was like, ‘What are we going to do with this and have fun?’ They sound like new songs; they’re fresh to sing.”

Hindsight is released via Provogue Records on October 27. A video for Stone Cold, featuring Bonamassa, was launched earlier this week.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
