In September, Rush’s ‘A Farewell to Kings’ will have its 40th anniversary. ‘A Farewell to Kings’ was their sixth studio album, and first to have a single hit the UK Singles Chart (Closer to the Heart, #36).
To commemorate the anniversary, Rush will be releasing a 12” vinyl single for ‘Cygnus X-1’ on April 22nd for Record Store Day. This is the first time the song has been released as a single. Only 5000 copies will be pressed.
