Rick Springfield and Badfinger have teamed up to create a new version of “Love Is Gonna Come At Last,” the 1979 classic from Badfinger’s eighth album, Airwaves.

Apart from lending vocals in the new version, Springfield also plays guitar, blending nicely with Joey Molland‘s voice and bass guitar. Molland wrote the song.

“Badfinger has always been one of my all-time favorite bands,” Springfield said in a statement. “In fact, I am often asked by journalists ‘What is the one song you had wished you had written?’ and my answer is ‘Baby Blue.’ What a perfect song! Their music was and is immortal.”

Badfinger’s new album, featuring guest artists Todd Rundgren, former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, Matthew Sweet and Sonny Landreth, is due out “later this year,” according to a press release. It will be the band’s first newly recorded material since 1981’s Say No More.
