Today the first single and video for the song âGrazed By Heavenâhas been released. It is available on all streaming services as well as an instant download with digital pre-orders. Watch it HERE
The lyrics for âGrazed By Heavenâ were written by Jeff Scott Soto and the music was written by bassist Dave Rimmer.
âThe song is clearly about sexual tension and desire, very much in the form of 'Fifty Shades Of Grey', putting oneself at ease with the person who is taking control of the situation and trusting you will be in absolute bliss. Fantasy and lust is the calling card here, itâs quite black & white really. The song is very sexy so naturally called for a sexy lyric,â says Jeff Scott Soto of âGrazed By Heavenâ
Dave Rimmer adds: 'Grazed'was born out of my desire to write a blazing Heeprock track, I put together the music and arrangement but needed a very strong melody line/lyric to match the music and the Riff..... I have been a fan of Jeff Scott Soto's voice and writing for many years so asked Jeff about a collaboration, he loved the song and came up with the perfect, & powerful lyric/melody..a very natural seamless collaboration between Jeff and I. A true 'Living The Dream'Moment for meâ

ABOUT URIAH HEEP: URIAH HEEPdebuted in 1970 with the release of one of hard rockâs milestones, âVery 'eavy... Very 'umbleâ and have since sold in excess of 40 million albums worldwide. They constantly tour the world, playing up to 125 shows a year to 500,000+ fans. The bandâs live set features the classic tracks from the '70s and is a musical journey from the band's beginnings to the present day.
Along with Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, Uriah Heep helped invent a decorative and uniquely British form of heavy metal with their debut album, Very âEavy, Very âUmble, offered as a self-titled on American shores, but whatever the titling, historically massive in the invention of a music format that would rule the â70s and only intensify in the â80s.
Uriah Heep have been responsible for the most elevated and intelligent use of vocals in a heavy metal context amongst the major bands inventing the genre in the 1970s. It is for this reason Heep were coined the Beach Boys of Heavy Metal, and their influence is there for all to see in other bands including âQueen.â They were also one of the forerunners of using the Hammond organ along with Micks signature wah wah guitar and this became the template for their sound.
Success has followed the forging of such an audacious formula. Across 25 studio albums, along with myriad live releases and compilations, Uriah Heep have managed to sell 40 million records worldwide, four million of those in the US. Impressive American numbers, but that leaves 36 million records to be sold in the rest of the world, underscoring the fact that Uriah Heep have become, through their relentless dedication to touring, a truly global band, with particular success in Germany, Scandinavia, Japan, Eastern Europe and Russia, where they were the first Western rock band to play live in Moscow in December 1987 to 180,000 people.
Through their success as Rock nâ Roll pioneers this enabled other bands to follow in their wake and Russia is now part of every bands touring schedule.
