Journey’s Neal Schon sits down with Kyle Meredith to talk about Freedom, the band’s first new album in eleven years.

The guitarist discusses having Chaka Khan, Prince, and Jimi Hendrix as influences, as well as looking up to Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page as an arranger. He also touches on how this album traces through Journey’s 50 years history, and what the future holds for their live shows.

In fact, Schon tells us that after their stadium tours, we might expect “An Evening With” type of performance that could stretch well beyond three hours with much bigger production than anything they’ve tackled before.
