Night Ranger will release a new, self-produced album, Don’t Let Up, on March 24.
“The album is the result of five musicians living and breathing rock ‘n’ roll 24 hours a day,” explains bassist and singer Jack Blades in a press release announcing the record. “Thirty-five years on and Night Ranger is once again ready to let the fans know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll, but I like it.”
Don’t Let Up will be made available in standard and deluxe editions. The deluxe edition boasts a bonus track and a DVD featuring band interviews and music videos for the new songs “Running Out of Time” and “Day and Night.” In the meantime, the album’s first single, “Somehow Someway.” has been released to give fans a taste of what to expect. You can listen to it above.
Guitarist Brad Gillis describes the new single as “a rockin’ barn-burner up to the standards of our first single, ‘Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.'” (That song appeared on the band’s first album, Dawn Patrol, and reached the Top 40.)
He’s enthusiastic about Don’t Let Up’s return to the sonic components that will make them recognizable to fans. “As is typical for NR, we have all the elements that made us popular in the first place,” Gillis says. “[This] includes twin lead vocal trade-offs with Jack and Kelly, and dual guitar harmonies and solos with my new partner in crime, Keri Kelli.” (Guitarist Kelli joined in 2014.)
Don’t Let Up marks Night Ranger’s first studio album since 2014’s High Road. That album reached No. 105 on the Billboard chart.
