since their June 2008 release of "Saints Of Los Angeles"
. The song was recorded at MÖTLEY CRÜE
drummer Tommy Lee
's studio called The Atrium
in Calabasas, California.
Speaking to VH1 Radio Network
's Dave Basner
in March, MÖTLEY CRÜE
bassist and main songwriter Nikki Sixx
stated about the band's new track, "It sounds very much like it's off of the first record [1981's 'Too Fast For Love'
]. And that was definitely on purpose. I've been writing very simple riffs for the last year and focusing on how these riffs would work for Vince
, vocals], basically, and took it in the studio with Tommy
, guitar] and the thing just came alive."
In an interview with AOL
stated about "Sex"
, "I think Nikki
is partially right. It's got a retro CRÜE
kind of vibe to it — a simplistic riff. But I also think the song has a modern sound to it. There's some cool analog synths in it and a beat that is really funky and modern. So I guess you can say that it has a retro yet modern sound."
He added, "Overall, I think that 'Sex'
sounds like 2012 and that makes me really happy. It turned out killer! Not that I'm not into some retro-sounding stuff, but it is 2012 kids — let's keep it moving. At the end of the day, it's a great summertime song that's going to have everybody screaming along to it on this upcoming tour."
