Stereophonics have grabbed Steve Miller Band’s title ‘Fly Like An Eagle’ and popped out a completely different song with the same name.
The ‘Fly Like An Eagle’ video was shot by Charlotte Regan and stars Charlie Creed-Miles (Peaky Blinders). Kelly Jones says “Our last gig of the world tour was September 2018, in Brooklyn – I was done, had written no songs, nothing new, I thought I felt like quitting for a while. Then by November I had a load of songs that just came through me, lyrics just filling up pages, no crossings out, complete songs formed. They became a very open and to be honest, bunch of really vulnerable songs about things I hadn’t quite worked out for myself, the songs began to inform me how I was feeling. I didn’t know, or really mind if others wanted to hear them or like them, I just needed to get them out of me. So when it came to an album, I wanted to just capture honest performances of them and we recorded the album in just 11 days. ‘Fly like an Eagle’ was one of the first I wrote and I feel it covers a lot of ground on the record and the line came, ‘wanna fly like an eagle, and dare to reborn’ – not in a religious sense but it’s about changing and growth, and learning not relying on the comfort zones of your life. And as people we all morph into new and different versions of ourselves. We don’t have to stay the same.”
