GUITAR WORLD: Jonny Lang to Release New Album, ‘Fight For My Soul,’ September 17

Jonny Lang has announced the upcoming release of Fight For My Soul, his first studio album in seven years.

The album, the followup to 2006’s Turn Around, will be released September 17 via Concord Records. The album’s first single, “Blew Up (The House),” began streaming today at

“This particular record has taken quite a long time to finish for a lot of different reasons,” Lang said. “Most of all, I started a family a few years back. Between family time and being out on the road, I really had to pick my spots to fit in recording.

“This album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it’s all about. It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing. Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far. Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”
