Status Quo have released Backbone through earMUSIC/Edel; the band’s 33rd studio album.

Some doubters said Backbone was a record that could not be made, but the 2019 line-up of Status Quo has been through a lot, and as of today will have chalked up over 130 shows as a unit and travelled tens of thousands of miles. This is a group of musicians that is strong, that back each other up and are tighter than ever. Backbone features of a trio songs drawn from the classic partnership of Rossi / Young as well as contributions from all of the rest of the band.

This is the record that shows that the creative fires burn as brightly as ever within the group’s founder Francis Rossi, despite it being the first Quo album not to feature the late great Rick Parfitt in any way. Backbone is a great Status Quo album. Simply: it had to be in order for it to see the light of day. Things change, the wheels keep rolling, this is now.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
