Frontiers Records is pleased to announce all details about the highly anticipated new GLENN HUGHES studio album.
Glenn recorded the album at the Hollywood Hills home of none other than RED HOT CHILI PEPPER?s drummer, Chad Smith, who will also be playing drums on the record. Joining Glenn and Chad were long-standing musical partner JJ Marsh on guitar and another RED HOT CHILI PEPPER, John Frusciante, who also plays guitar on the album;
"While writing new music for this record, Chad and I thought it would be great to have John come in, write and play on a couple of the tunes", Glenn says. "John has written a song specifically for me". Smith also co-produced Hughes? 2005 album "Soul Mover" with Glenn, and fills the same role on the new release
The record, entitled "Music For The Divine", features such tracks as "This House", "Black Light", "Stepping On" and "The Valiant Denial".
"....the title is very important to me", explains Glenn. "When you hear the music, you?ll understand the meaning. The title speaks to me, as all the previous one?s have. Divine is goodness and is a statement to the fans that really understand my music".
"The album has deep lyrical and spiritual meaning", according to the great "Voice of Rock" and, "once again is where I?m at, at the present time. I do not wish to tread into the past and so this album is a major step forward to me. This is my most honest and artistic album. I am very glad to know that things have continued to grow along spiritual lines". "Because of the amazing changes in my life, that have happened since ?Soul Mover?" continues Hughes, "it has given me a creative output and encouragement to make this new album. When I was growing up in England, my favourite bands & artists were always growing and morphing and continually reinventing themselves and this CD, I believe, has captured all of those elements".
Mix engineer for the record is Ryan Hewitt (RHCP, BON JOVI, BILLY JOEL, U2).
It sounds like it?s gonna be one divine album! Expect a release date in early June.
