Judas Priest have launched a stream of Dragonaut, the opening track from upcoming album Redeemer Of Souls.
Guitarist Richie Faulkner – who joined after KK Downing left in 2011 and has been credited with rejuvenating the band – describes it as "a rip-roaring ride from start to finish."
He adds: "It's a big, heavy track. Unmistakeable Judas Priest."
Redeemer Of Souls is released on July 4.
