New Roadcase Royale: Stream ‘The Dragon,’ a Song Nancy Wilson Wrote for Alice in Chain’s Layne Staley

This Friday, September 22, Roadcase Royale will release its debut album, First Things First. The supergroup, led by Nancy Wilson of Heart and Liv Warfield of Prince’s New Power Generation has been earning a lot of attention over the past few months, all leading up to the album’s premiere.

Speaking premieres, a song from the record called “The Dragon” was shared by Billboard on Wednesday. As Wilson explained, the song was inspired by the life and struggles of Alice in Chains’ late front man Layne Staley as an ‘open letter’ of sorts from Wilson to the singer, who eventually succumbed to addiction. The wake of recent suicides from Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington only make themes like this all the more relevant.

Stream the song below:

In addition to Wilson (guitar) and Warfield (vocals), Roadcase Royale features Ryan Waters (lead guitarist) along with Heart members Chris Joyner (keys), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Ben Smith (drums).
