Known principally as the vocalist, lead guitarist and composer for The Moody Blues – Justin Hayward is delighted to release his brand new single, entitled “Living For Love”, via BMG. “Living For Love” is his first release from Hayward in over two years and comes ahead of his tour of the UK happening this month.

Hayward said of the release, “I’m one of a generation that as teenagers, if we were lucky, were living just for love; with the most wonderful music, freedom and optimism. We didn’t really understand at the time but I have to celebrate those days now, while we are still here, and we remember.”
“Living For Love” was recorded in Italy earlier this year, but the release was held until now while Hayward featured in ‘The War Of The Worlds’ tour and completed his rescheduled live solo gigs in the US so that the song could be released ahead of his UK tour. Hayward and his recording partner Alberto Parodi are the only musicians featured on the record.
Hayward is an enduring talent that has helped to define the times in which he worked. Possessing one of the most distinctive voices in rock music, Hayward penned classics like “Nights in White Satin”, “Question”, “New Horizons”, “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere”, “Tuesday Afternoon”, “Story In Your Eyes”, “The Voice” and “Your Wildest Dreams”.
As well as his work with The Moody Blues, Hayward has released seven solo studio albums and continues to be in high demand as a performer across the world. “Living For Love” shows that his creative spark burns as brightly as ever.
