Rush unleashed the stunning animated video for their classic single “The Spirit Of Radio” from their album Permanent Waves.

Embedded below, the video serves as a tribute to drummer Neil Peart, who passed away in January following a private battle with brain cancer.

Per a press release, “The animated video captures the magic, spirit and growth of the FM radio format with a nostalgic nod to the pioneering DJ’s broadcasting music into homes around the world.”

The video also serves as part of an ongoing 40th anniversary celebration of Permanent Waves, which has received a reissue release that is available in a variety of formats here.
