Mick Mars Releases New Song “Right Side of Wrong”
American guitarist and former Mötley Crüe, Mick Mars released a new song “Right Side of Wrong” along with a music video on December 13, 2023.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming debut solo album “The Other Side of Mars”, which is set to be released on February 23, 2024 via his own label 1313 LLC.
The track was written by Jabob Bunton, Mick Mars, and Paul Taylor. Produced by Michael Wagener.
Mick Mars told USR about the song, “'Right Side of Wrong' has kind of an odd solo in it. Different than what I've heard anybody do. Maybe Jeff Beck could have [done something like this]. But I tried to not stray from it, but to go, 'Here's another level of me. Here's this weird part - play a solo over it.' It's like a kaleidoscope kind of thing, where these notes come out of this, and it's a different color than the rhythm is in this part. I don't know how to really explain it, but that's what came to me. I'm really, really trying to be what I am, which is a little off. Maybe I am from Mars? I have no idea.”
- The album comprises a 10-track, produced by Michael Wagener.
Mick Mars said of producer Michael Wagener, “I had known him for a long time, and I actually brought him to Mötley. He had such an understanding of where I wanted to go with the material. And he never said 'Hey, do this,' or tried to change my mind or anything like that. He was just really adamant about recording what I wanted to record, and making sure we recorded it right.”
He said of the album, “People are going to hear my tone - my sound. I am what I am. Nobody else can do it. And like everyone, I've got a limited number of years. So, I'm gonna do all I can to do a lot of stuff.”
Jacob Bunton joined in the album as vocals. Mick Mars said, “Jacob came into the studio and it was like, bam! And I just said, 'Yeah, he's the guy.' And most of his vocals were one take.”
