Saxon frontman Biff Byford has released a video for his new track Me And You.

It’s the latest material taken from the vocalist’s upcoming solo album School Of Hard Knocks, which is set to arrive next Friday (February 21) through Silver Lining Records.

Byford previously shared the songs Welcome To The Show and the title track

He says: “Happy Valentine’s Day. I wrote this song for my wife and our 25th anniversary, but I think it can be for anybody who’s in a relationship. We all have anniversaries and memories."

He adds: "Not my usual style of song, but it’s always good to throw in a curve ball.”

Byford is joined on the album by Opeth guitarist Fredrik Åkesson, bassist Gus Macricostas and drummer Christian Lundqvist, while special guests include Motorhead ex Phil Campbell, Rhapsody Of Fire’s Alex Holzwart, Voices’ Nick Barker, Dave Kemp from Wayward Sons and his Saxon bandmate Nibbs Carter.

The vocalist will head out on tour across the UK in April for a run of 10 spoken word and music shows.

Prior to that, Byford and his Saxon bandmates will play four shows which were postponed due to the singer’s heart surgery.
