Serj Tankian is in a giving mood in advance of his upcoming solo album ‘Harakiri,’ due July 10. The System of a Down singer is offering a free download of the disc’s leadoff track ‘Cornucopia,’ in addition to unveiling a lyric video for the tune.

We recently had the chance to speak to Tankian about his new album, and he told us that ‘Cornucopia’ was an ideal fit as the leadoff track. “I think ‘Cornucopia’ is a great representation of the album,” he explained. “It’s probably the most kind of upbeat and positive sounding song, but it does have a good balance of ’80s vibes from the pre-choruses and the heavy chorus that comes in that’s more of what you would hear in the rock or metal song.”

Tankian added, “I think that’s why I wanted to use it as the first song on the record — it gives a good idea of what this record is about.”

Check out ‘Cornucopia’ in the lyric video below, and if you like what you hear, head over to Serj Tankian’s official website to download the tune.
