This track was released as the lead single from Echoes on June 1, 2016. It was recorded at House Of Loud in New Jersey with David Bendeth, a man with a CV that includes records from bands like Papa Roach, All Time Low and Paramore.
Frontman Gus Wood has described this in interviews as "a big anthemic rock song." Asked by Artist Direct what it is about this style that speaks to the band, Wood replied:
"I think it's more just what happens naturally when we write. We are not necessarily the world's most subtle band, we like big songs that kind of smash you in the head and make you sing, that's the goal. I don't know why, I've never really questioned. We just kind of write and that's what happens."
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
