Yngwie Malmsteen will unleash his new full-length effort, Blue Lightning, this Friday (3/29) through Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group. Today, the guitar legend has released an official lyric clip for the LP’s title-track.

“I wrote the title track Blue Lightning specifically for this album. The track is very free, everything on it is improvised. I hope you’ll enjoy it,” says Malmsteen in an official statement. Check out the stream below.
