DOKKEN singer Don Dokken offerered a short preview of his brand new collaboration with legendary guitarist Michael Schenker, a song called “Faith”, during an appearance on today’s (Monday, October 8) edition of the “Dropping The Needle” podcast. You can now watch the interview below. (Note: The Dokken/Schenker track can be heard starting at around the 16-minute, 30-second mark.)
According to Don, he has picked a select few cuts from Schenker‘s three instrumental acoustic albums “Thank You, Vol. 1”, “2” and “3” and is currently laying down vocals over them.
In a recent interview with GlideMagazine.com, Don stated about his collaboration with Schenker, “It’s going to be fun. He’s a great guy and he put out a few acoustic CDs. I saw him last month in Bulgaria and he says, ‘Don, we’ve always been talking about doing an acoustic record.’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ So he gave me a couple of his albums that are just instrumental and I said, ‘Why don’t I take them home and see if I can write lyrics and sing over the songs?’ And it’s coming out really great. It’s not rock; it’s a kind of chill record.”
