Using their smartphones from four separate locations Hagar, drummer Jason Bonham, bassist Michael Anthony and guitarist Vic Johnson have recorded and released a brand-new song entitled “Funky Feng Shui.”
You can see video of the foursome performing the track while obeying social isolation rules below.
“The Circle will be doing more of this, it’s too much fun!” Hagar declared on Instagram. The post goes on to explain that Bonham challenged his bandmates to record “a jam they’d been playing backstage warming up for shows” to pass the time during the coronavirus shelter-at-home lockdown. The drummer recorded his parts first, Johnson added guitar second, followed by Anthony’s bass and finally Hagar’s vocals.
Hagar and the Circle were scheduled to launch a North American tour with Whitesnake and Night Ranger on July 9 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Earlier this week Whitesnake were forced to step down from the tour as a result of singer David Coverdale’s pending surgery.
