The 69 Eyes release new single “Gotta Rock”

The 69 Eyes are unstoppable at the moment and have returned with yet another new song today – the first one off their upoming, still untitled new album that will see the light of day in early 2023.

“Gotta Rock” lives up to its name – it was premiered at the biggest Finnish TV primetime show “Vain Elämää” tonight, in which you could watch Jyrki 69 staying in a castle with 7 other artists that performed each other’s songs during their stay. This new banger is a cover from the famous Finnish hard rock band Boycott that released this rock anthem in the late 80’s and for this remake, The 69 Eyes even received some famous help, as singer Jyrki 69 explains:

“The Finnish classic rock band Boycott was one of our favorites in the 80’s when we put up The 69 Eyes. Due to the Finnish music TV program that I was recently featured in, we finally had a reason to make our own, more Gothic Rock sounding cover of Boycott’s ultimate classic 80’s smash hit ‘Gotta Rock’. Die Krupps’ Jürgen Engler was helping us to arrange it into this darken mode!”
