JOURNEY Could Begin Recording New Music This Year; "After This Tour We May Have A Window," Says Keyboardist JONATHAN CAIN

Keyboardist Jonathan Cain is hopeful that opportunity will come during Journey's summer tour with Def Leppard and lead to hitting the studio later this year.

"After this tour we may have a window to do it," Cain tells Billboard. "It could be a great record. I can almost see it in my mind. I couldn't tell you that a year ago."

As he prepares to release his new album The Songs You Leave Behind - a compendium of both new and older material whose title track is premiering exclusively at Billboard - next month, Cain is feeling optimistic about new Journey music.

"I'd like to revisit that," Cain says. "I'm in a good place musically, mentally, spiritually. I'd like to get with Neal (Schon) and find out what he's got on his mind, get with Arnel (Pineda) and just start gathering (material) and see what we've got."

Def Leppard and Journey are teaming up for a massive co-headlining North American tour. Promising to be one of the top tours of the year, the North American trek will be composed of both stadium and arena concerts, with half of the shows being closed by Journey and half by Def Leppard. The tour, promoted by Live Nation, kicks off May 21st in Hartford, Connecticut, at the XL Center and will feature complete sets and all-new production from both bands, and an arsenal of their hits such as “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Lights,” “Photograph,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Rock of Ages” and “Faithfully.”

The 58-city tour will hit ten stadiums - Toronto’s Rogers Centre; Atlanta’s Sun Trust Park; Detroit’s Comerica Park; Chicago’s Wrigley Field; Denver’s Coors Field; Minneapolis’ Target Field; Boston’s Fenway Park; St. Louis’ Busch Stadium; San Francisco’s AT&T Park; and San Diego’s Petco Park - as well as world-famous arenas, such as Madison Square Garden in New York and the ‘Fabulous’ Forum in Inglewood, California.
