He is The God Of Hellfire, a music legend who is surely one of the most influential figures of theatrical rock, and even 5+ decades into his extraordinary career, Arthur Brown is still heating things up! Brown has just announced the release of a new 7” vinyl that contains a stunning new rendition of his signature hit “Fire,” which features a host of devilishly talented hellions including Stooges guitarist James Williamson, drum icon Carmine Appice, keyboard maestro Brian Auger, and producer Jürgen Engler. Like the man himself, “Fire” is a timeless treasure whose appeal has only increased over the years. Originally released in 1968 by the group that bore his name, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, “Fire” was a global phenomenon reaching the top spot on the singles charts in both the UK and Canada while hitting the #2 spot in the U.S. It’s considered one of the biggest crossover hits that brought Psychedelic Rock to mainstream audiences and launched Brown into the musical stratosphere.

This new limited-edition 7” pressing will be available in your choice of either fiery RED or YELLOW vinyl. Most exciting of all is that this release previews a thrilling full-length album from Brown that will feature even more amazing guest stars set for release in 2022!
Brown had this to share about the coming project, “It’s a great pleasure being involved in making this high quality, imaginative piece of terror and fun.”
