The new album, Freedom, from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, will be released on July 8. And fans can preorder it HERE.

To celebrate the news, the band released its newest single, “You Got The Best Of Me,” which you can check out below.

“I wanted kind of a punky rendition of ‘Any Way You Want It,’” says the Journey founder, producer, and guitarist Neal Schon of the new single. “I usually don’t go in saying I’m going to look for something like that, but then it just came to me, like ‘Wheel in the Sky’ did years ago. It just kind of flew out of my mouth.”

“During the pandemic, there wasn’t much to do,” added Schon. “I spent a lot of time in my little studio at home, learning how to play keyboards and looping. Some of those ideas ended up being songs. So it kind of came out of nowhere.”

Freedom will be the band’s first new studio LP since the 2011 album, Eclipse. Check out the track list and see Journey’s upcoming touring schedule below.
