MICHAEL MONROE has just unveiled a brand new video from his latest album.

'Derelict Palace' is the third single to be released from the Hanoi Rocks legend's latest solo album I Live Too Fast To Die Young, which was released during the summer through Silver Lining Records.

The release of the video comes just weeks after the singer celebrated his 60th birthday at the Helsinki Ice Hall, reforming the original line-up of Hanoi Rocks for the occasion.

“'Derelict Palace' is about watching someone that you care about disappear into drug addiction," explains the song's writer, guitarist Rich Jones. “I had been listening to a lot of post-punk when I wrote it - Echo & The Bunnymen, Psychedelic Furs, The Church - and I wanted to see if we could push the band in that kind of musical direction.”
