The Dead Daisies have released a third song from their upcoming debut album. Singer Jon Stevens calls ‘It’s Gonna Take Time’ “a personal view of the world we live in today”.
“It’s a personal view on the world we live in today. We’re all running around on this planet consuming everything in our path,” Stevens said. “There are so many distractions, that the simple things in life, we don’t seem to have time for anymore? Is it just me? Everyone seems to be in a rush nowadays. This song is about stopping for a minute and identifying what is really important in your life! Simple really, but hard to do in this day and age! I hope whoever hears this song, will leave all their other distractions at the door, turn up the volume and Rock Out!”
The Australian supergroup The Dead Daisies completed a US and UK tour in 2013 and will perform for Australia in small, intimate shows soon, as well as a few A Day On The Green’s.
