Cry Freedom

Album: Afterglow (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • It was producer Kevin Shirley who suggested that Glenn Hughes share the vocals on this tune with guitarist Joe Bonamassa. "I sang this one alone originally until Kevin pointed out that the album didn't have a song with split vocals," he explained. "Joe and I sing well together. I've never had a problem sharing a microphone with other great singers. We really let rip off one another on this one, which has a ZZ Top/Humble Pie kind of a vibe."
