The Neal Morse Band are set to release their new album The Grand Experiment on the 16th of February, 2015, and they are excited to launch a video for the album’s title track, which you can view here.
Neal comments: “I am thrilled with how this song came out. During the recording sessions for the album, I remember waking up one morning wondering what was going to happen that day and not having a clue what direction the album would take… and I was thinking, “Man, this is a grand experiment!”. And as I was lying there I thought of the chorus, but my original version was slower and more of a keyboard thing…then the band got to it and Mike had the rockin verse idea and it developed from there. The video was shot and edited by my son Chad. Hope you all like it!”
For the first time ever prog icon Neal Morse came into a recording session with his long-time friend and collaborator Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Bill Hubauer and Eric Gillette…with NOTHING! He had no prepared material at all.
Neal comments: “I wanted to see what it would be like to create freely in the room with no preconceived notions. It was quite a risk!”
The Grand Experiment will be available as 2CD & DVD Special edition digipak featuring a bonus disc of unreleased studio and live tracks plus a ‘Making Of’ DVD, 180g LP + 2CD featuring the full standard album on CD plus the bonus CD or as standard edition jewel case CD.
