During a recent press release, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has announced that he will release a new song titled ‘Simple Truth’ with his solo band Ellefson on April 17.

Ellefson said that he wrote this song to the Italian people who had bad times due to coronavirus. He said that he performed many shows in Italy and there was an indescribable connection with the Italian people, so he gave them this song as a gift.

Here’s what David Ellefson stated:

“We actually wrote the song in Milan during a tour rehearsal, and a lot of it was recorded there. We’ve gone back and forth with Andy in Italy, from the Platinum Underground in Phoenix, and with our mixer and co-engineer Alessio Garavello in London.

While we’re all staying positive and just keeping busy, it’s heartbreaking to see what’s going on over there with the death toll climbing every day.”

He continued:

“We played several shows in Italy on our European ‘More Live With Deth’ tour last year, and I was just there with Megadeth back in February. It’s absolutely devastating to see what the country is going through right now.

The people, and its culture, have been so welcoming to me over the years, that I’m honored to do anything I can to give something back to them during this time of need.”
