Legendary English guitarist John Sykes (TYGERS OF PAN TANGTHIN LIZZYWHITESNAKEBLUE MURDERSYKES) will release his first album in 19 years later this year via Golden Robot Records. The as-yet-untitled disc (its previously announced title of “Sy-Ops” has now apparently been scrapped) is expected to include such tracks as “Dawning Of A Brand New Day”“Believe In Yourself”“My Guitar” and “Out Alive”.

The 59-year-old completed the material for the album nearly five years ago. “But then my manager died,” he explained. “With him, I lost someone I could really trust. So I put the disc on ice.”

Sykes added that his first album since 2000’s “Nuclear Cowboy” will live up to his fans’ expectations. “People who like what I did on the 1987 [self-titled album] from Whitesnake and the two studio records from Blue Murder” will be pleased by the new material, he said.

The CD will reportedly feature guest appearances by the following musicians:

Josh Freese (WEEZER, A PERFECT CIRCLE, GUNS N’ ROSES, DEVO): Drums

Tony Franklin (THE FIRM): Bass
Chris Chaney (JANE’S ADDICTION): Bass
Jamie Muhoberac (THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, FLEETWOOD MAC, THE ROLLING STONES): Keyboards

John‘s best-known work was when he joined WHITESNAKE and co-wrote the band’s self-titled seventh studio album, released in 1987. It produced a major power ballad hit, “Is This Love”, along with the No. 1 hit “Here I Go Again”. The album was a major crossover hit, eventually selling over eight million copies in the U.S. alone.

Sykes announced his departure from THIN LIZZY in July 2009, explaining that “I feel it’s time to get back to playing my own music.”
