Bush premieres new ’The Art of Survival’ song, “Heavy Is the Ocean”

Bush has premiered a new song called “Heavy Is the Ocean,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, The Art of Survival.

In a statement, frontman Gavin Rossdale says that “Heavy Is the Ocean” “sets the tone and the gravitas” for  The Art of Survival as the record’s opener.

“I love the power of the ocean,” Rossdale shares. “It’s mesmerizing to me. It feeds your soul. The song uses the imagery I love.”

“At this point, I’m chained at the zoo of rock!” he adds. “So, I was like, ‘F*** it, I’m going to turn that puppy up.’ This one definitely represents The Art of Survival.”

You can listen to “Heavy Is the Ocean” now via digital outlets.

The Art of Survival, the follow-up to 2020’s The Kingdom, will be released October 7. It also includes the previously released single “More than Machines.”

Bush is currently on tour alongside Alice in Chains and Breaking Benjamin. The outing concludes October 8 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
