Loverboy Return With New Song ‘Hurtin’ #LISTEN

Loverboy have released a brand new song ‘Hurtin’ ahead of upcoming live dates with Rick Springfield.

According to Loverboy’s Paul Dean the origins of the song came originally from a concept by Pat Benatar band member Mick Mahan and his songwriting partner Gregg Montane intended to be the theme for a national football broadcast.

When that didn’t happen, Mike Reno and Paul Dean made it their own.

“I took what they gave him, changed it up a bit, and came up with a melody and a couple of hooks,” said Dean. “The idea was to create an anthem for the home crowd to sing about putting a ‘hurtin’ ” on the other team.”

Loverboy will start their North American tour with Rick Springfield on May 28.
