Regarding the forthcoming album, the singer shared the following in a press release:
“My new album ‘Midnight Rose’ grew from sparks of ideas I had. The sparks developed into a raging fire when the band and everyone involved brought their absolute ‘A’ game. I think it is my best album to date; I like it. I hope you do too.”
