The first single, This Don’t Look Like Vegas, was lifted from the album for release in November and has received rave reviews worldwide, prompting the decision to go global digitally with the solo record. The track was written by Dizzy Reed, Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy, The Almighty, Black Star Riders) and Del James, features Warwick and Mayuko Okai on guitar, with fellow Gunner, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy), bringing the guitar solo.
