Steve Lukather has today released the title track from his upcoming ‘I Found The Sun Again’ album, which you can watch below. The song was inspired by his girlfriend Amber, who appears in the video. The album ‘I Found The Sun Again’ is out on 26 February 2021 via The Players Club / Mascot Label Group.
Luke told MetalTalk: “This was the first solo record I have done in many years. I felt free to try a do it old school, like we used to do it – live in the studio.
“I am very proud of it and the players I used really brought their very best.”
This is the third track released from the album, which features a number of stars including Toto singer Joseph Williams, who also releases a solo album on 26 February. Both Lukather and Williams contributed to each others records.
As Steve told us here previously, “All these tracks were cut live – no clix – no fix – No rehearsal – one run thru – and record and the whole record was take two.
“I did double a few guitar parts and ‘produced up’ a few tunes that are obvious, but in the same time frame. I recorded the lead vocal right after we got the take on the same day. One song a day.
“Joe took it home and did some background vocals but that’s it. I wanted to make as honest a record as I could in 2020 with 70’s inspiration, recording values and techniques with a modern sound. Ken did that!”
A portion of the proceeds from this album will be directed to The Ed Asner Family Center for Autism.
