Freedom is due July 8th
Journey has released “Don’t Give Up On Us” from their forthcoming Freedom album, due July 8th via BMG around the world and Frontier Records in Japan.
“It is a very melodic song. It’s soulful, coming more from that R&B place and a little more Motown sounding but it definitely rocks. I feel like it’s got Journey all over it,” says founding member Neal Schon about the track.
The group emerged from the pandemic with a supercharged new studio line-up that includes guitarist Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, vocalist Arnel Pineda, former American Idol judge Randy Jackson returning as bassist after 30 years, Narada Michael Walden as drummer and keyboardist/vocalist Jason Derlatka.
Last month, the classic rockers had to postpone the remaining four Freedom Tour dates due to a member of the band testing positive for COVID-19. Four dates were affected but are planning to be rescheduled next year. The group returns to the road again in July to promote their first new album in 11 years.
Journey and AEG have announced four exclusive Las Vegas show dates featuring special symphony orchestra performances at the new, state-of-the-art Resorts World Theatre. The shows are July 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd. Tickets for the special engagement are on sale now via Journey’s website.
