Grammy Award Winning legendary music icon and master of progressive rock, Alan Parsons will return with a new album, “The Secret” on April 26, 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the first song from the album, entitled “Miracle”, featuring Jason Mraz on vocals, has been made available.
Of the collaboration with Mraz, Alan says, “I met Jason two years ago through a neighbour who grows coffee on his ranch. Jason wanted to grow coffee himself and our neighbour, Jay was kind enough to introduce us since we had mutual musical interests. For ‘Miracle’, Jason recorded his vocals in Dallas while I listened in Santa Barbara and we sent files back and forth, resulting in this song. Thus proving that you don’t necessarily have to be in the same studio with someone to create music. This was also the case with Lou Gramm on the track “Sometimes”, which he sang in New York.
Mraz adds, “‘Eye In The Sky’ is a song I have a very early memory of, strapped in the backseat of my mom’s green Fiat, 1982. Alan Parsons is on the radio and I’m singing along, harmonizing. That sound of rich harmony over magical words would stick with me for my whole life and ultimately become what my own career is about, trying to solve universal quandaries through song craft.” When Mraz heard “Miracle”, he said, “I loved it. It sounded like a song right off of ‘Eye In The Sky’. As if no time had passed, proving time might just be a construct after all”. Woking with Alan was “[m]agic. Alan is very kind, very creative, and very authentic,” concludes Mraz.
