For some, July will mark the top of a protracted silence. For others, the month gives a platform for one more fast burst of creativity.
Journey’s first album since 2011’s Eclipse finds Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain once more recording with bassist Randy Jackson, who earlier appeared on 1983’s Frontiers and 1986’s Raised on Radio. Chicago can be returning after a very long time away: Born for This Second is their first new music in eight years.
Elsewhere, Tedeschi Vans Band continues a four-album sequence titled I Am the Moon, that includes a complete of 24 new songs. The immediately very-active Alan Parsons is about to launch From the New World, the follow-up to 2019’s The Secret. Earlier than that, Parsons hadn’t issued a solo mission in 15 years. Jack White can be again with Getting into Heaven Alive, the second of two 2022 LPs following April’s Concern of the Daybreak.
Jeff Beck’s new mission builds on a musical partnership with Johnny Depp that started with a visitor activate the Hollywood Vampires’ Rise album in 2019. Sure bassist Billy Sherwood’s fourth all-star Prog Collective album options bandmate Jon Davison, former Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre, Steve Morse of Deep Purple, Rod Argent and David Clayton-Thomas of Blood Sweat & Tears, amongst others.
July’s slate of reissues contains an expanded super-deluxe version of Dio’s Holy Diver, that includes unreleased outtakes, stay tracks and rarities. Neil Younger has emerged from the vault with an initially shelved Loopy Horse file from 2001 known as Toast. ZZ Prime’s intimate new stay album is devoted “in righteous reminiscence of Dusty Hill,” who died in 2021.
