Journey To Release New Single Soon
By Gary Stuckey
In a recent live stream interview with Roland at a Bananas grand opening in San Rafael ,
Jonathan Cain shared some exciting news. They have been working on a new album, but there's more.
"We've got a cool single. You've got to check it out. It will be out next month I believe.
It's a cartoon (video) of all of us. And we did kind of a tongue-in-cheek version of the Covid situation.
It's called " Back To The Way We Used To Be." We've gotta get back to the way we were living...
and back to the way we used to be. We wanna get back."
Cain described what the song is about. " It starts with this guy and girl and they are separated
and they're bummed out....I won't give the whole thing away...."
You can see and hear the joy in Cain's voice as he talks about new music.
"It's super hip. I'm really excited about it"
Of course, every Journey album has that signature guitar sound.
"Neal plays blues guitar on it....It sounds like....may I say.. a little Stevie Ray Vaughn... blues guitar?
Neal plays sensational and the band sounds really good."
The band has been waiting for their lawsuits (with former bandmates Smith and Valory) to be over
with before they could release the new single.
This is Journey's first album in 10 years and will feature the new band members Narada
Michael Walden on drums and Randy Jackson on bass. Jackson was in Journey and recorded and
toured for their Raised On Radio album back in 1986/87.
Neal Schon replied to a fan online that the single may drop next week, which, coincidentally, (or is it?)
would almost be released 35 years to the day of Raised on Radio.
So, we shall se what happens. I for one have waited a long time and I'm very excited to say the least!
Who knows. There may be some more surprises in store soon.
Don't Stop Believin'!
