“Talk To Me”, the new song from SIXX:A.M., can be streamed below.
#TalktoMe is a movement by the National Opioid Action Coalition to use the power of conversation to overcome the stigma plaguing opioid use disorder.
“Talk To Me”, written by MÖTLEY CRÜE founding member and Global Recovery Initiative Foundation board member Nikki Sixx with his band SIXX:A.M., received its premiere on September 24 at an Advertising Week NY panel on the critical role brands can play to help combat the opioid crisis. Celebrity influencers, government agency and global business leaders armed Advertising Week NY attendees with creative assets and tools to help fight the stigma associated with this epidemic in their communities. The song was created by SIXX:A.M. in support of the #TalkToMe campaign.
“Talk To Me” is available at Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Amazon Music.
The band, which also features guitarist DJ Ashba, singer James Michael and drummer Dustin Steinke, hadn’t released any new music in two years and had been on hiatus since 2017. Ashba has since formed a new band, PYROMANTIC.
Sixx spoke about SIXX:A.M.‘s future plans in March while promoting the MÖTLEY CRÜE biopic, “The Dirt”, and discussing the long-awaited Broadway adaptation of his memoir, “The Heroin Diaries”.
“I’ve just done four new songs with SIXX:A.M.,” Nikki told BUILD Series at the time. “Really magical. I think we’re gonna go in and record another song as well. We have a greatest-hits [collection coming out] that’s gonna tie into the musical. And if there is time, maybe, for SIXX: A.M., we might go out and do — I don’t know — a couple of weeks’, three weeks’ worth of shows, maybe do festivals next year or something.”
A music video for an as-yet-undisclosed new SIXX: A.M. song was filmed in December.
When “The Heroin Diaries” was published, it was accompanied by a soundtrack by SIXX:A.M. The 13 tracks on the record each correspond to one month of Sixx‘s supposed diary, which he kept from 1986 to 1987 and formed the basis for the autobiography.
SIXX:A.M. embarked on its first North American headlining tour in support of the band’s third album, “Modern Vintage”, in 2015.
The 10th-anniversary editions of SIXX:A.M.‘s “The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack” was made available in October 2017.
SIXX:A.M.‘s latest album, “Vol. 2, Prayers For The Blessed”, was released in November 2016 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc was written and recorded at the same time as “Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned”, released earlier that same year, and it acted as a companion piece to the first chapter.
