Preview: Journey's Jonathan Cain Releasing Third Solo Album

Artist: Jonathan Cain
Title: The Songs You Leave Behind
Release Date: June 8, 2018
Label: Identity Records / Fuel Music
Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain will release his third solo album in as many years, The Songs You Leave Behind, June 8 via Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution. This new digital album features 19 tracks, including two new songs, five recordings never before released and 12 more autobiographical songs selected by Cain as companion tracks for his first book and audio book, Don't Stop Believin': The Man, the Band, and the Song that Inspired Generations, which became a Publisher's Weekly bestseller following its release May 1 (Zondervan Trade).

The title track and new song about one's legacy, "The Songs You Leave Behind," is being premiere-streamed now by Billboard and features guitarist Miles Schon (the son of Journey guitarist Neal Schon). The second new song on the album, "What Else Have I Missed," is dedicated to Cain's children and highlights the talents of Grammy Award-winning songwriterGary Baker and legendary steel guitar player Dan Dugmore.

The never-before-released songs on the project include "Waitin' On The Wind," "Crossing The Great Divide," "Shine," "Mixed Blessings" and "The Day They Became Angels," the latter track commemorating the tragic school fire in which 92 of Cain's grade school classmates died. Cain first performed the song during the standing-room-only Memorial Mass, 50th Anniversary of the fire at Holy Family Church in Chicago.

"The fire shook my faith as an eight-year-old child," remembers Cain, "but when I look back now, I see a thread of redemption. That tragedy forever changed fire codes around the world, saving countless others."

Several more tracks that appeared on Cain's solo albums Anthology (2001) and Back To The Innocence (1995) were remastered for the new album at Cain's state-of-the-art Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville by producer, mixer David Kalmusky known for his work on multiple Platinum albums.

In 1976 Jonathan Cain released his first solo record, Windy City Breakdown. In 1979 he joined the band, The Babys, and in 1980 joined the rock band, Journey, rounding out the songwriting genius behind the defining album, Escape. Cain's signature piano, synth playing and songwriting contributions with Journey, The Babys and Bad English have earned him many Billboard hits, multiple gold, platinum and Diamond-selling records, a Star on the Hollywood walk of fame, a Grammy nomination and the best-selling catalog rock song in iTunes' history ("Don't Stop Believin'"). Journey was named as the fifth best band in rock history in a 2005 USA Today opinion poll, was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 and continues today, selling out major venues worldwide.
