This past Friday, Circles Around The Sun shared the single “Money’s No Option”, set to appear on the band’s forthcoming studio album. The band’s self-titled third studio effort is due out March 13th and will feature the final recordings of late founding member and guitarist, Neal Casal.
On Saturday, the band followed the song’s arrival by sharing a behind-the-scenes video of Casal playing his guitar in the studio while tracking his guitar part to the recording.

The video runs at 91-seconds and showcases Casal front and center, riffing away on the funky rock track with a white Fender Stratocaster while accompanied in the studio’s control room by the wine-drinking session engineer. Casal looks totally locked in and even shows a little bounce in his legs during his performance throughout the video.
“‘Money’ is Neal’s tune,” the accompanying copy reads. “We would play it in soundcheck and he pushed Adam to finish writing it. Then Neal basically ripped over the whole song!! Also credit to Sam Blasucci for help with the title.”
Watch the behind-the-scenes video of Casal below.

Building up the March release of their final album featuring Casal, Circles Around The Sun will team up with guitarist Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead) for a run of performances beginning later this month. Tickets are available via the band’s website.
