Good news. I got an email today with a link to the new Gerry Beckley song "Friends Are Hard To Find" from his upcoming album.

I gave it a few listens. Another great song from Mr Beckley. Can't wait to hear the new album.

Yeah the news has been on the usual social media pages. Waiting to find out when the albums exact release date is but it should be soon. Gotta like that Gerry has been pretty prolific over the years with regards to solo album releases....

Thanks Kevin--didn't know it was still that far out, but it will be an immediate purchase!

Thanks for the heads up on the new tune, Kevin. Hope it sits better for me with a few more listens. Personally, I like his more guitar driven songs. Curious title though!DanC

Here's more on Gerry's upcoming album, due in June...

Co-founding America singer/songwriter Gerry Beckley will release his latest solo album, Aurora, on June 17.

Coinciding with the announcement, Beckley has released one of the album’s tracks, a catchy pop gem titled “Friends Are Hard to Find,” via streaming services.

Gerry explains that the new song “seeks to relieve the isolation all of us felt during the last nearly two years,” and was written with inspiration from “the spontaneous creativity” of famed songwriter Jimmy Webb, who is Beckley’s good friend.

Aurora is an 11-song collection that Gerry recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic at his two home studios, in Sydney, Australia, and Venice, California. The tracks on Aurora include tunes that began as unfinished demos and scratch recordings that date back as far as the early 1970s, as well as brand-new songs written during the past two years.

Beckley co-wrote one of the new songs, “Tickets to the Past,” with his America band mate Dewey Bunnell, marking the first time a tune that they wrote together will not first appear on an album by their band.

Aurora is sequenced like a traditional two-sided vinyl LP, with songs that are arranged to flow with a beginning, a middle and an end. Reflecting on the new collection, Gerry says, “When you hold a mirror up to your life, it’s hard to control how much of your life is in that reflection. I don’t want to say it’s about one thing in particular, I’d rather leave it more open-ended.”

America’s currently on tour in the U.S., and has more than 20 upcoming dates lined up this year. The band’s next concert is March 11 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.

Here’s the full Aurora track list:

“Aurora”
“I Fall Down”
“Never Know Why”
“Tickets to the Past”
“Way to Go”
“Friends Are Hard to Find”
“Peace of Mind”
“Indy’s Gatho”
“Aerial”
“Superscope”
“Tears”

There's more info out today on Gerry's new album, and a new single that includes Dewey Bunnell on it...."I’m so excited to share my latest single “Tickets to the Past”, featuring my partner in crime for all these years, Dewey Bunnell of America (The Band). Getting back in the studio with Dew was such a fantastic experience and I can’t wait for you to hear what we put together. You can listen at https://linktr.ee/gerrybeckley, as well as pre-order my new record, ‘Aurora’, available June 17th. Thanks for listening!"

No disrespect meant to this long-time chat folder, but most of the action about the band is on the Facebook pages these days. But I'll continue to share new music/reissue info here as well.

Thanks for the info, Steve. And keep posting here. I try to stay off Facebook so I don't see what's happening there. It's just a shame that the admin of this chat has abandoned the site. Oh well, we can carry on without him. Or in spite of him.

No problem Kevin. I know that you & Dan C in particular don't use Facebook, so I'll keep the updates coming here, and I'm sure others will appreciate it as well. Yeah, Rich has abandoned the site--would be nice if he'd come on here and delete the posts that have nothing to do with the band...

Grahame - The link I posted still works for me. It's an audio with only an image of a silver convertible as the song plays. No idea why it doesn't work for you. :(
