Jonny Lang expresses his frustrations and fears in debut album.
The latest from the Concord Records stable is one Jonny Lang. His debut effort Fight For My Soul is already available in the UK and makes its release in the US and Canada today. The album is reminiscent of Stevie Wonder. It carries with it the nostalgia of Donny Hathaway. It even looks forward to the likes of James Morrison. It reminds you of a time when music meant what it said and said what it meant. The album’s lead single, “Blew Up the House”, says it best.
A work of art six years in the making. Jonny Lang takes a minute to talk about the creative process behind his album in the following EPK. Between touring and becoming a father to four, Fight For My Soul saw a transformation as the man himself transformed. Every detail became that much more important after becoming a parent, the soul-a-coaster, rock ‘n roller stresses. It’s a special record to him for these reasons and not to mention him getting to work with his musical hero and producer, Tommy Sims. Eric Clapton’s GRAMMY award-winning “Change the World” was co-penned by Sims and he lends the same magic of his legacy to Lang’s Fight For My Soul.
