TUK SMITH & THE RESTLESS HEARTS reveal new song, ‘Little Renegade’





TUK SMITH & THE RESTLESS HEARTS have released ‘Little Renegade’, another new single taken from TUK’s second studio album set to arrive later this year via Gypsy Rose Records/Cargo.

TUK explains the new track as follows;

“Big enough for arenas, but personal enough for a diary entry! Stylistically, this one’s more power than pop and a little more spit than shine. This is the type of song I would want to hear if I was feeling like the world had turned its back on me. More than ever I feel it’s important to write about things that give you an emotional surge, and then hopefully it connects with the listener on a deeper level. The album overall, unknowingly started to take shape almost as a concept record, full of characters, lyrical vignettes, stories and themes that have been a constant running through my life. Little Renegade is no exception, another plea to the disillusioned rebel trying to find their place in the modern world.”

‘Little Renegade’ follows the release of ‘Take The Long Way’, the lead single from the album, which grabbed ‘Track of the Week’ at Classic Rock magazine’s regular vote of the best singles, and second release, ‘Glorybound.’

The new album follows TUK SMITH & THE RESTLESS HEARTS 2022 debut, ‘Ballad Of A Misspent Youth’. At the time, Classic Rock magazine asserted “‘Ballad Of A Misspent Youth’ is never less than exhilarating. Just the way rock’n’roll should be.” The album’s lead single & title track romped straight on to playlists at UK rock radio stations, Planet Rock and Primordial Radio.

If charisma and talent were all it took to be a star, TUK SMITH would have cemented himself among the world’s most notorious and beloved songwriters a long while ago. But in a business filled with loaded dice and bloated suits, TUK remains a rock ‘n’ roll outcast.

Paradoxically, he continues to strive for that coveted spot of musical immortality that, in today’s modern world of algorithms and social media trends, remains reserved for those with the money to buy their way in or for those who are willing to lose themselves.

TUK has been and remains: neither of the above.

TUK’s signature sound – for any and all blessed enough to have heard it – has found a place in the upper echelon of contemporary rock n roll. For those who have yet to become familiar, it’s a bare-knuckled blend of AC/DC swagger, Cheap Trick melodicism and Thin Lizzy guitar wizardry. The man behind the sound is an absolute force.

Never willing to settle, never ready to stop, TUK is slated to release his anticipated second studio album in 2024. Listeners can expect more hooks that stay with them for days and choruses they can sing along to the first listen through. All of this proudly without label interference or hindrance.
