Former Foreigner singer Lou Gramm is the voice of the new Alan Parson track ‘Sometimes”.
Gramm’s last album with Foreigner was ‘Mr Moonlight’ in 1994. Between 1987 and 2015 Lou has released four solo albums.
Alan Parsons was the engineer on The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ and ‘Let It Be’ albums as well as Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’.
Parsons created The Alan Parsons Project to release a series of Prog-Rock albums through the 70s and 80s. In 1999, Mike Myers named-checked him in the movie ‘The Spy Who Shagged Me’.
Parsons’ new album is called ‘The Secret’. Alan is an amateur magician and named the album after his hobby. “Magic has always been a passion of mine, I am a member of The Magic Castle in Los Angeles,” Alan Parsons said. “I’ve also worked with the Japanese magic company Tenyo, writing instruction books and catalogs for their tricks. I dabble with magic myself in my free time, so an album with magical influences was a natural progression”.
‘The Secret’ also features a track with Jason Mraz.
