Metal Mind Productions will release Doogie White’s debut solo album in Autumn. This Scottish vocalist came to the attention of the worldwide audience when Ritchie Blackmore asked him to be the lead singer in his reformed Rainbow. They recorded one album together – “Stranger in Us All.” Doogie would go on to sing with Swedish neo-classical guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen for over a six and a half year period, record two albums and tour the world. He also recorded four albums and toured with Cornerstone and is currently the lead singer of Tank, who embark on selected European dates starting this month.
The album called “As Yet Untitled” is a collection of 10 dramatic and hard hitting rock songs co-written by White and some good friends he has made over the years on the rock scene. The list of guest musicians involved in the recording of “As Yet Untitled” looks impressive:
Drums – Patrick Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen), Thomas Broman (Glenn Hughes);
Keyboards – Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion), Tony Carey (Rainbow);
Bass – Neil Murray (Whitesnake), Greg Smith (Ted Nugent), Paul Logue (Edens Curse);
Guitars – Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall), Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt), Phil Hilborne (Queen Musical), Mick Tucker (Tank);
Guest vocals – Patti Russo (Meatloaf, Cher).
The album was recorded at various studios in Florida, Germany, and Scotland but most of the production was handled in Sweden with Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall) at the helm.
Front cover illustration of “As Yet Untitled” was done by the Polish graphic designer Jarosław Wieczorek.
