Sinabi ng frontman ng bandang Journey na si Arnel Pineda na umaasa siyang mailalabas nila ang kanilang full-length album ngayong taon.
Sa isang panayam, sinabi ni Pineda na nakatapos na sila ng anim na kanta.
“We’re on to finishing the album. We finished six songs so far. There’s talk of going out somewhere first, maybe Las Vegas for a residency. We don’t know yet. We haven’t decided. Just to break the ice between the new members and us,” sambit niya.
Aniya, pinaghalong mga ballad at rock song ang magiging laman ng kanilang ilalabas na album.
“For now, we’re doing the rocker songs first, not the ballads. I think the seven songs they’re working on, they’re working on something huge, like how you’ve known Journey doing ballads. It’s between [1981’s ] ‘Mother, Father’ and [1978’s] ‘Winds of March.’ We’re working on that song. We’ll see what happens. I’m waiting for them to send me the demos so that we can record it next week,” wika niya.
Sambit pa ni Pineda, hindi rin naging madali ang paggawa nila sa album dahil sa pandemya.
“It’s quite hard right now. I have a few melody ideas that I’m into and want to share with them, but you can’t right now because of what is happening. I just have to listen to it and learn it. We use Zoom to record and I turn on my laptop and go into Logic Pro. They get a hold of it. If there’s something I want to change, I tell them. But it’s all pretty much done and I just record with them,” anang singer.
Una nang nagbigay ng hint ang singer na maglalabas sila ng album noong nakaraang linggo sa kanyang Instagram account.
“so who’s ready for some @journeymusicofficial action later this year?” saad niya sa kanyang post.
