Propelled by a steady stream of success from his recent releases, Neal Morse is stepping up his game for the release of his new studio album, 'Momentum'. Leading up to the release of 'Momentum' on September 10th, three official music videos will bring the album to life, visually. The first video for the new song 'Momentum' premiers today and you can see it at the bottom of this page.
Featuring the guitar work of six string legend Paul Gilbert, and of course the stellar drumming of long-time partner Mike Portnoy, 'Momentum' is a musical thrill ride that will leave you breathless! Everything you'd ever want in a Neal Morse album is here; great prog elements, hooky pop choruses, intricate vocal weaving, blistering musicianship and beautiful melodies are all present - this is the ultimate prog epic from the man who practically invented the term.
