In Celebration Of The 40th Anniversary Of 'A Farewell To Kings' Rush Will Release A Limited Edition Single For 'Cygnus X-1' As A Record Store Day Exclusive

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) This year marks the 40th anniversary of Rush's sixth studio album, A Farewell To Kings. To kick-start the celebration, on April 22, 2017, UMe/Anthem/ole will release a limited edition, 12" single for Cygnus X-1 as an exclusive for Record Store Day, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Featuring "Book I: The Voyage" and "Book II: Hemispheres," this is the first time these tracks will be released as a single and the pressing will be limited to only 5000 copies. Cygnus X-1 is pressed on 180g vinyl and features brand new artwork by Hugh Syme, Rush's longtime artwork and creative director.

Side A:
Cygnus X-1 - Book I: The Voyage

Side B:
Cygnus X-1 - Book II: Hemispheres

Released in 1977, A Farewell To Kings is the studio follow-up to 2112 and is a continuation of Rush's musical growth, as they continued to push traditional rock boundaries and explore new ground, both musically and lyrically. Recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, A Farewell To Kings was the band's first U.S gold-selling album, receiving the certification within two months of its release, and was later certified platinum. /
