Glenn Hughes is currently involved
in preproduction for his next CD!
Working with Glenn is
keyboardist Hans ZermŘehlen and guitarist Joakim
"Jocke/J.J." Marsh. Both Hans and Joakim
have been touring with Glenn over the last few years.
Joakim has contributed to several Glenn Hughes CDs;
"Addiction," "The Way It Is," and
"Incense & Peaches." Hans has
contributed to "The Way It Is" and
"Incense & Peaches."
Here are the latest
comments from Glenn:
are now written. The album (the title will be
kept secret until I've finished recording) will
be released hopefully the same day all around the
world, the first week of May.
10 songs with Hans, I realized that I needed to
write another 10 heavier songs with Joakim,
because I was convinced that this new Glenn CD
should be the hard ROCK album that most people
and music critics have been expecting for the
last few years. The album will probably contain
10 songs, plus one bonus track for Japan.
As always, I am
extremely excited about my new songs. We are now
in pre-production at Hans' studio in the San
Fernando Valley. I can only describe the music as
a return to my roots. Having discussed with
associates in the music industry and members of
the press, and GH fans, I came to the conclusion
whilst having a rock label at SPV, it would seem
appropriate to deliver an album that can be
serviced, marketed, and promoted that people will
come to expect this time around... It is my
decision to make this type of CD. I think that
the pure GH fan will fully understand this album.
Having just toured in South America and Germany
on the hard rock stage, I felt a need to commit
myself to a new batch of rock tracks to be
performed and written for my new album, so I can
REALLY play these songs live. I felt a need in my
soul that it was time to dig deep and write the
rock album that people have been expecting for
exciting times. I feel fresh, I feel grateful,
and extremely focused and inspired.
Stay tuned for
