Sammy Hagar & The Circle recently released a video for “Father Time,” from their new album, Crazy Times.
The video was produced by Chris and Aimee Kurtz and edited by Aaron Abercrombie and Sean Power.
Crazy Times, which dropped on September 30, debuted at No. 6 on Billboard‘s Top Album chart, earning Hagar his second top 10 in the last four years.
“When I first wrote ‘Father Time,’ I kept it from everyone because it was so personal that I’d get too choked up to actually sing it,” Hagar says of writing the track. “I wrote it just after turning 70 while I was at our then home in Maui. That house was my sanctuary in the middle of the jungle, overlooking the ocean- it was just paradise.”
“The words ‘Father Time’s over there looking over my shoulder’ just kept going through my head, so I picked up my guitar and the rest of the song just cam e spilling out,” he added. “I turned on my iPhone and recorded it. I cried my eyes out after I wrote and played it back. It’s probably the most personal song that I’ve ever written and now, after just turning 75, I’m finally ready to release it.”
