Stryper frontman Michael Sweet has set “Ten” as the title of his next solo album, due later in the year via Rat Pak Records.
In a brand new interview with Daily Boom, Sweet stated about the upcoming follow-up to 2016’s “One Sided War”: “It’s really great. I always go into a project with expectations and sometimes I meet or surpass them, but sometimes I don’t. Sometimes a song might be a little bit of a letdown and not what I had hoped for, but with this album so far, everything is as I’ve expected and then some. Now granted, I don’t have the lead vocals done yet, so the pressure is on me. [Laughs] I hope the lead vocals turn out how I hear them in my head and how I would like them to be, but you never know. You just don’t know until you get in there and you start singing and you get it done.”
He continued: “So far though, the songs all have incredible energy. I’ve got Will Hunt playing drums on it and John O’Boyle is playing bass. The rhythm section is phenomenal and the guitar tones are great. I’m going to have a different guest guitar player on every song, with a solo, of course. I’ve got Todd La Torre of Queensrÿche joining me on a song and it’s just turning out to be a really cool album. I think that it’s going to surpass my last solo album and that did really well, but I think this one is going to be even better.”
