What’s this… Journey’s new album? Journey’s new album??? Everybody panic, this is not a drill! Journey is releasing a new album, we repeat, Journey is releasing a new album!
Sorry about all that repetitive yelling, but it’s warranted. For the first time in eleven years, the rock legends of Journey are releasing a full-length studio album! The upcoming album is titled Freedom and dudes, we are so freaking pumped for this! Journey has put out some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time and this album is already shaping up to be one for the books!
Real footage of us right now at THP headquarters:
This album was made during quarantine when the group’s guitarist, songwriter, and producer Neal Schon was stuck at home like the rest of us. Instead of mastering sourdough and learning how to crochet (badly), he made a whole album!
During the pandemic, there wasn’t much to do. I spent a lot of time in my little studio at home, learning how to play keyboards and looping. Some of those ideas ended up being songs. So it kind of came out of nowhere.

Although COVID and lockdown were awful and terrible and we wish they never happened, quarantine has gifted us with some amazing new music. (*cough* WFTTWTAF *cough*) We really deserve it at this point to be fair. We deserve this album.
Journey also released a new single! ‘You Got The Best Of Me’ is the rock and roll anthem we need! It’s so high energy and fun and the scream-at-the-top-of-your-lungs factor is through the roof. It’s everything we expected and more! Journey is taking their old-school rock sound and making it more modern, while managing to hold on to that classic Journey sound, and we are here for it. This is 100% a new road trip classic. You can stream Journey’s new single here.
We cannot wait for Journey’s new album! Freedom is out July 8th and you can preorder here.
How excited are you for Journey’s new album?? Are you as excited as we are?? Probably not, we’re so excited that we’re literally shaking like a chihuahua… let us know on Twitter @TheHoneyPOP, or hit us up on Facebook and Instagram! We must yell together, we simply must.
