Lynyrd Skynyrd has shared a brand new song titled 'Last of the Street Survivors'.
Revealed via Facebook, the band wrote, "As promised, here's a little gift from our Skynyrd family to yours. We want thank everyone for making this possible. Stay safe and God bless."
The song reminisces the band history and music career. The lyrics were written by frontman Van Zant and guitarist Rickey Medlocke, songwriter Tom Hambridge and Lynyrd Skynyrd's last surviving original member and co-founder, guitarist Gary Rossington.
Listen to the song below:
We played the Garden in New York City / We rocked the house down in New Orleans / We think about the ones we lost along the way / As we're rolling down the road with Mr. Breeze,
The chorus goes, "Out here on the 75, keeping the dream alive / Highway brothers and midnight riders /We're the last of the street survivors."
The song title comes from the band's farewell tour (which itself was inspired by their 1977 LP, Street Survivors). The band has currently put their tour on hold due to the ongoing global pandemic.
