Big Big Train drummer Nick D’Virgilio has released a video for his new single, a cover of the 1959 song “Money (That’s What I Want),” Tamla Motown‘s first ever hit and a song covered by The Beatles and Flying Lizards.
The song is taken from D’Virgilio‘s upcoming second solo album “Invisible,” which will be released though English Electric Recordings on June 26. You can watch the video in full below.
“Invisible” features a raft of guest musicians including King Crimson bassist Tony Levin, Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess, Frost*s Jem Godfrey, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Supertramp guitarist Carl Verheyen, Mr. Big guitarist Paul Gilbert and Flower Kings/Steve Hackett bassist Jonas Reingold.
“Invisible is a rock album with various musical flavours thrown in because the songs were formed with the story in mind,” the drummer explains. “A classical prelude that uses various themes from the whole piece sets the stage. From there comes a mellow ballad outlining the story and then it is on to the adventures of the central character. The main thing making this record did for me was to reaffirm my strong belief that we are all here for something. We all have a purpose.”
