Moody Blues guitarist and vocalist Justin Hayward has premiered a video for his brand new single Living For Love, which you can watch in full below.

Living For Love is the first new music from Hayward in two years and is released today through BMG Records.

“I’m one of a generation that as teenagers, if we were lucky, were living just for love; with the most wonderful music, freedom and optimism," Hayward explains. "We didn’t really understand at the time but I have to celebrate those days now, while we are still here, and we remember."

Living For Love was recorded in Italy earlier this year by Hayward and his recording partner Alberto Parodi. Hayward plays his 1961 Gibson J200 and his 1963 Red Gibson ES 335, and between them, the pair play all keyboards.

The single is released on the eve of Hayward's upcoming The Voice Of The Moody Blues UK tour

“I’m so very pleased to be back on the road in the UK," says Hayward, "with a set full of old songs and new, as well as the stories around them. With me will be the amazing, award winning guitarist Mike Dawes along with multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Julie Ragins -, a renowned recording artist in her own right - and Karmen Gould, the finest young flute player of her generation. We can’t wait to bring our show home."
