John Sykes (TYGERS OF PAN TANG, THIN LIZZY, WHITESNAKE, BLUE MURDER, SYKES) 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 WHITESNAKEand the two studio records from BLUE MURDER" will be pleased by the new material, he said.
The CD will reportedly features 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.
