This is a surprise

Life, Love & Hope - Boston
December 3, 2013

The countdown to the next new batch of Boston recordings has begun in earnest, and although the Dec. 3 release date for the band’s first new LP in 11 years might still feel pretty far away, at least we now have a record cover to look at while we wait.

Titled ‘Life, Love & Hope,’ the new record marks Boston’s arrival on Frontiers Records after successful stints at Epic and MCA, as well as a brief stop at Artemis for 2002′s ‘Corporate America’ release. And according to Scholz, his latest music deliberately hearkens back to the band’s best-known hits.

“These are songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of Boston’s harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analogue tape on the same machines and equipment used for Boston’s hits for the past 35 years,” said Scholz in a press release. “I intentionally stayed close to the early Boston style on some of the songs, even using the same amps and instruments; on others I let my imagination run wild.”

‘Life, Love & Hope’ marks the first Boston release since the tragic passing of original singer Brad Delp, who took his own life in 2007. But thanks to Scholz’s legendarily deliberate pace, the track listing will still feature performances from Delp, as well as vocals from Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme, David Victor…and Scholz himself.

‘Corporate America,’ released eight years after 1994′s ‘Walk On,’ peaked at #42 on the Billboard albums chart.
