"SO U" DUE OUT MAY 19TH VIA FRONTIERS RECORDS
(New York, NY) - Neal Schön fans can click here to check out the exclusive worldwide premiere of the video for "What You Want" on Ultimate Classic Rock. The smoking new track/video is taken from the forthcoming jazz and blues-inspired hard rock studio album, SO U, and includes vocals by bassist Marco Mendoza and Schön, as well as drummer Deen Castronovo. SO U features Schön along with Mendoza (Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Hardline) splitting vocal and writing duties, with many of the tracks also co-written by Night Ranger/Damn Yankee's songwriter, singer and bassist Jack Blades.
Of the new album, Ultimate Classic Rock raved, ""SO U stands tall as one of the finest albums that Neal Schön has released to date. The combination of Schön with Deen Castronovo and Marco Mendoza is a potent triple threat which delivers on every level. With nine tracks spread over 51 minutes, SO U never overstays its welcome and the typically diverse blend of material will strongly resonate with fans of Schön's previous work, most notably Santana and Journey. I'll be standing by and waiting for a sequel." SO U will be available on May 19th in North America via Frontiers Records. The album can be pre-ordered now via iTunes, Amazon and via the Journey online store; those who purchase SO U now via iTunes will receive "Exotica" as an instant gratification track.
