"Caravan" is the first single from Rush's upcoming 2011 album Clockwork Angels with music and lyrics credited to Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. It was released to radio stations and saw digital release on June 1, 2010. The B-side is an additional studio track titled "BU2B". Both songs were recorded April 13, 2010 at Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz with mixing and engineering done by Richard Chycki at the Sound Kitchen in Franklin, Tennessee. The songs were mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York. According to drummer Neil Peart's latest personal essay, these two new songs are the initial parts of what he refers to as an "extended album-length story"
