Last month, Sammy Hagar revealed that he'd recorded a new song with two of his Chickenfoot band mates -- bassist Michael Anthony and drummer Chad Smith -- as well as Journey 's Neal Schon , for an upcoming album project. Now, the Red Rocker has unveiled full details about the album, a collection of tunes that will feature him teaming up with a variety of well-known musicians. Due out September 24, Sammy Hagar and Friends will include a mix of covers and original songs that, in addition to rock, will explore blues, pop and country sounds.
Besides Anthony, Smith and Schon, the album will feature contributions from Kid Rock , Chickenfoot's Joe Satriani , Heart 's Nancy Wilson , country singer Ronnie Dunn , Hagar's longtime backing group The Wabos and Dennis Carmassi and Bill Church -- fellow surviving original members of Sammy's former band Montrose . Among the new songs on Sammy Hagar and Friends are "All We Need Is an Island," which features Wilson; "Going Down," with Anthony, Smith and Schon; and "Father Sun," on which the Hagar duets with his son Aaron . The record also boasts renditions of Bob Seger 's "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" and Depeche Mode 's "Personal Jesus."
Prior to the release of the album, Hagar will hit the road on the Four Decades of Rock summer tour, which, as its name suggests, will celebrate Sammy's 40-year music career. The trek is mapped out from a July 26 show in Tucson, Arizona, through a September 7 concert in San Francisco.
