“It’s a love that I have for the band but it’s a duty I also have to our audience to keep things moving forward…”
From Release: Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, Journey have 25 gold and platinum albums, including the fifteen-million selling Greatest Hits collection, with total sales adding up to 80 million records around the world. As the band’s legend continues to grow larger and their touring gets bigger, Freedom will be the first album of new material to be released in eleven years, since 2011’s Eclipse, and in addition to longtime keyboard player and primary lyricist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda, one more member was recruited for the upcoming album — bassist extraordinaire Randy Jackson, who had played on Journey’s 1986 album Raised on Radio.
We caught up with the legendary Neal Schon of Journey to talk about the band’s new album ‘Freedom’, timing, its creation, on Journey being a generational band, touring, and much, much more… apologies for fanboying a few times too ha ha.
