Big Machine Label GroupAs Cheap Trick prepares to launch a new North American tour with Poison tonight in Irvine, California, the band has just released a brand-new single, “The Summer Looks Good on You.”

The song is available now as a digital download and via streaming services. You also can check out a lyrics video at Cheap Trick’s official YouTube channel that features brightly colored animated paint splatters and the band’s trademark black-and-white checkerboard pattern as the lyrics are displayed.

“The Summer Looks Good on You” is a big-sounding mid-tempo pop-rock tune that, as the title suggests, celebrates the beginning of the season. The track includes a soaring instrumental break that blends a wailing guitar solo with what sounds like a full orchestra. The song was co-written by Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander and Tom Petersson, along with frequent collaborator Julian Raymond, who co-produced the track with the band.

Cheap Trick’s Nothin’ but a Good Time Tour with Poison and opening act Pop Evil is plotted out through a July 1 concert in Hollywood, Florida. The band also has a variety of other shows on their 2018 schedule. Check out their full itinerary at
