Journey have released their new studio album, Freedom, via BMG.
On the heels of their stellar Fourth of July performance on CNN’s The Fourth In America special last week, emerging from the pandemic with a supercharged new studio lineup, the release of Journey’s epic, fifteen-track set of new original songs brings back the grand scale of the group’s greatest moments, along with updated and bold new directions and sounds.
As the band’s legend continues to grow larger and their touring gets bigger, Freedom is 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.
Freedom will be released by Frontiers Records in Europe and Japan. BMG will release the album for the rest of the world.
To help commemorate the new release, Journey and AEG announced four exclusive Las Vegas show dates featuring special symphony orchestra performances at the new, state-of-the-art Resorts World Theatre. The residency kicks off July 15.
