Sammy Hagar and The Circle premiere video for Trust Fund Baby

The Circle

Last month, Sammy Hagar and The Circle revealed their new single Trust Fund Baby (opens in new tab).

It was the first taste of new material from Hagar, Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, and it was lifted from their upcoming studio album Space Between (opens in new tab).

Now they’ve launched a video for the song, which was directed by ZZ Satriani, the son of guitar virtuoso and Hagar’s Chickenfoot bandmate, Joe.

Explaining the lyrical theme behind Trust Fund Baby, Hagar says it’s “nailing what happens when kids are given too much money too early in life, and it becomes an affliction. 

“All the money in the world isn’t a guarantee for a good life. I’m a believer in working hard and finding purposeful work – but that comes later in the story.”

ZZ Satriani adds: “We were lucky because Sammy’s writing style let us create the story quite literally from the lyrics.” 

Space Between will be released on May 10 via BMG, while the band will head out on the road across the US from April.
