Last August, Schon gave a college radio simulcast interview khổng lồ WMSC & WNUW where he discussed the progress of the songwriting và recording sessions for the band"s upcoming studio album. He said: "I learned how khổng lồ play keyboards better than ever during the pandemic, which I"d never really done before. & that"s where our first single <"The Way We Used khổng lồ Be"> came from. Jonathan <Cain, keyboards>, và he did the lyrics on it and put a rough vocal on it. And then we had Arnel sing it, and we cut it and re-cut it in the studio, và it was just released. And a lot of people went, "Wow, man. I love it." 90 percent of people love it; the other 10 percent went, "I don"t think it sounds lượt thích JOURNEY." I go, "I never wrote it to lớn be a JOURNEY song.""

According lớn Schon, he và his bandmates had written over 30 new songs for the upcoming JOURNEY record. "Some of "em are unmistakably JOURNEY without sounding lượt thích another song that we have; it just sounds like a new version of the band," he said. "It"s ballistic, man. And there"s no lack of guitar on this record. So I"m excited about it getting out there. I think any guitar player out there is gonna love this record, because I"m just kind of unleashing on this record — like I vì chưng a lot live, but sometimes hold back in the studio. I don"t think it"s on the guitar at all & going overboard, but I lượt thích to check out the times & where I see music going. I usually have a pretty good gut instinct about it, and I feel like the late "60s, the time và era of early Jeff Beck with Rod Stewart and <LED> ZEPPELIN when they first came out, Jimi Hendrix, the CREAM with <Eric> Clapton & Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, that whole era, there"s a lot of younger kids out there, younger generation, that never got to experience that era. So I"m feeling like that is the era that I grew up in and that"s what I truly love doing and the type of music I love playing, so I"m going more there & I"m writing for that, to lớn be able to vì that on stage. And I think it"s really gonna trip some people out, when we finally do get this album out there and can combine it with all the hits that we vì chưng have."

He continued: "There"s certain songs that are being mixed by Bob Clearmountain, that mixed our "Raised On Radio" record, and he"s made it sound really amazing, really pulled it together. You have mixers out there sometimes that have this incredible ability to lớn take work that you"ve done throughout a year, even though they were recorded at separate times, và different sounds here và there, và they pull it all together & they make it sound lượt thích it"s a tight album that has a focus sound-wise."

Neal added: "The whole album, there"s not a filler on the record; that"s what I can tell you. I look at it, và I"m listening khổng lồ it now, và many others that have known our music for a long time that have very good ears have said, "Look, this is the modern-day-and-age "Escape". I think this could be the next "Escape" for you guys." & I think that"s a bold statement, but honest to God, I feel like it"s that good."
