La la la is driven by sheer vocal power. Its storytelling lyricism is delivered with the charisma and character that is instantly reminiscent of Freddy. With the same irrepressible passion, singing like it is the last song.

We even see an overarching reference to the 70s rock style and bands like ‘The Beach Boys and Led Zeppelin. And all put together, you see how the band creatively revives the grace and eclectic inclinations of one of the most loved bands in the history of time. Listen Now!
