On the heels of their spectacular North American arena tour, Journey is back with a brand new single “Let It Rain” from their forthcoming studio album titled “Freedom” set for release July 8 via BMG – available for pre-order HERE.

Just coming off of the first leg of our sold out Freedom Tour, we are excited for our new single release ‘Let It Rain’ as it offers a sampling of what the next new chapter of music we have in store on our new albumFreedom,” says the group’s founding member, guitarist, songwriter, and producer Neal Schon. “It’s so exciting to see multi-generational fans in our audience; many of them being very young and singing all the songs and very open minded to the new material. We look forward to seeing you all for the second leg of our summer tour!”

Emerging from the pandemic with a supercharged new studio line-up, “Let It Rain” will be followed by an epic, fifteen-track set of new original songs that brings back the grand scale of the group’s greatest moments, along with updated and bold new directions and sounds.

Schon adds, “We didn’t immediately work on the song, it just sat there as a jam for a long time, and then every once in a while, I’d come in to work on something, and Narada (Michael Walden) would play it for me, and I’d go, ‘Wow, we should really fucking work this thing up, there’s something there.’”

While the forthcoming album was made with visions of arena and stadium stages, it started from humble beginnings. In 2020, as COVID-19 swept the globe, Schon was stuck at home like the rest of us. “During the pandemic, there wasn’t much to do,” he says. “I spent a lot of time in my little studio at home, learning how to play keyboards and looping. Some of those ideas ended up being songs. So, it kind of came out of nowhere.”

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.”
