Classic Rock Legend Trevor Rabin Returns with Upcoming Album “Rio” and Premieres “Push” Music Video


Trevor Rabin, the renowned South African guitarist, singer, multi-musician, writer, and producer, has recently made an exciting announcement. After 34 years, he is set to release his first solo vocal material album titled “Rio,” launching worldwide on October 6.

Today, Rabin delights fans with the release of his second single, “Push,” accompanied by an intriguing music video. You can watch the video for “Push” below.

Reflecting on the song, Trevor Rabin shares his inspiration: “For this song, I was thinking of the horror of politics and politicians. Once Vinnie Calaiuta played drums on this, it inspired me to redo some of the instrumentation. Vinnie’s performance lifted this song beyond what I imagined. I utilized the strings at the end of the track to start the ARW live shows.”

“Rio” will be available in various formats, including a Ltd CD+Blu-ray Mediabook and Ltd Deluxe Gatefold Red 180g 2LP + Blu-ray, both featuring bonus material, 5.1 surround sound, and liner notes. The album will also be released as a Standard CD Jewelcase, Gatefold 180g 2LP+LP-booklet (with etching on side D), and as a Digital Album.

Trevor Rabin, a multi-talented artist, also showcases his digital artistry on the album’s cover: “I dabble with digital art, so I sent some images of mine to the label and was pleasantly surprised when they liked them.”
