Exclusive: Meat Loaf Video for ‘Going All the Way’

Share This:

Meat Loaf Braver Than We AreBest Classic Bands is pleased to present the exclusive premiere of “Going All the Way,” the first single and brand new video from Meat Loaf’s latest album, Braver Than We Are! The new song from the Grammy Award-winning musician and film, TV and stage actor is a collaboration with Jim Steinman, Meat Loaf’s partner on such legendary classic rock albums as the original Bat Out of Hell and Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell.

The track also features Karla DeVito and Ellen Foley on vocals, decades after Meat Loaf collaborated with them on the smash hit “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”

The album was released by 429 Records digitally, on CD and vinyl in the U.S. on Sept. 16.

Braver Than We Are debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and at #4 on their Rock Chart. For the album, Meat Loaf recorded 10 songs written by Steinman. While Paul Crook produced the album, Steinman acted as creative consultant throughout the recording process, working alongside Crook and Meat Loaf sending suggestions, adding verses and contributing opinions on every aspect.

Says Meat Loaf, “’Going All The Way’ is such a classic Jim Steinman song, and with Karla DeVito and Ellen Foley on vocals, we were able to bring back the feeling of the group in the song. My hope for the video is to evoke emotion when you watch and listen to the new single.”

    This album is such a disappointment. All the songs sound like they have come strait out of a musical not a rock album.

      I love the song…but in the video Meat, you look stoned. I wondered if you needed to rest a bit more from the back surgury. Hang in there…one thing you do not do well is take care of yourself!! Rest if you need, your fans love your dedication. But you have to.take care of yourself.
