Collective Soul Releases New Song, Upcoming Tour

Collective Soul have had a succesful career ever since their debut in 1994. The band now celebrates their 30th anniversary tour with the release of the first song and music video for “Mother’s Love,” off of their upcoming album “Here To Eternity.” Pre-orders of the albums are available now here.

Collective Soul recorded and self-produced “Here To Eternity” with co-producer Shawn Grove at Elvis Presley’s estate in Palm Springs, CA. They’re the only other music artist to ever record at the historical landmark. The album also features Paul McCartney’s longtime guitarist Brian Ray on side guitar.

“I happened to be walkin’ down the street and I had met Brian Ray a couple of times,” Ed Roland said. “I saw him and was like, ‘Brian, hey man. Why don’t you come over and break bread? We’re up at Elvis’ house.’” The invite for a bite of grub turned into a session, of course. With a laugh, Ed Roland added, “I’m gettin’ pretty sneaky in my old age.” 

“The sticky DNA, with Elvis being there,” bassist Will Turpin said. “You can just tell it was his designs. All pink tiles. It’s straight out of 1977. It was super cool just to be there and in the zone.” 

“Here To Eternity,” COLLECTIVE SOUL’s 12th studio release, is due out May 17 on their label, Fuzze-Flex Records distributed physically by AMPED Distribution and digitally by Virgin Music Group. It includes 20 brand new songs which will be available everywhere on digital stores and streaming partners (including a Dolby ATMOS version), as a single disc CD, and as a limited-edition double-disc colored vinyl.

Later this summer, the band will hit the road with Hootie & the Blowfish along with Edwin McCain for the “Summer Camp with Trucks Tour” produced by Live Nation. The tour will visit 44 cities across the U.S. and Canada, and kicks off May 30 in Dallas and runs through September 28 in West Palm Beach. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com and Citientertainment.com.
