Golden Earring celebrate 50 years with new single

An anniversary for Golden Earring! These days Barry, George, Rinus and Cesar have been playing together non-stop for 50 years. A unique fact in the world of international rock music.

As one of the few Dutch bands, Golden Earring has achieved large-scale and long-term national and international successes wit, among others, Radar Love (the world’s #1 roadsong), Twilight Zone and When The Lady Smiles.

The accompanying albums Moontan and Cut became millionsellers and brought Golden Earring international star status. Golden Earring has been dominating Dutch and Belgian statistics for years with more than 30 gold and platinum albums.

Although the band has been around for more than 50 years, it was not always in the current composition. Cesar joined the band at the end of 1969 and from that moment on there was “Cesar on drums”!

Barry, George and Rinus had been playing together for a while at the time. After a few rehearsals, the foursome went on stage in this composition from the beginning of 1970 to this day.

The band is on tour again and will for example give a grand concert in Ahoy Rotterdam on 16 November.

To celebrate this happy anniversary, new music from Golden Earring is being released for the first time in 4 years: The single is kicked off. SAY WHEN, an “old-fashioned”, dynamic rocker from top-notch Golden Earring!

The band signed for this single with Red Bullet again and to celebrate, a limited edition physical single will be released with the second track “Back Home”, a number 1 in 1970, and the breakthrough single in Germany.

“Back Home” was also the 1st single from Golden Earring in the current “golden” composition: 50 YEARS TOGETHER.

A few more special releases are planned for 2020, singles and vinyl …
