Out on June 16, 2023‘As close as we’ll get to a new Toto record’
Over the course of five decades Steve Lukather has placed an indelible stamp on pop culture. Alongside his tenure as the only member of Toto to never take a hiatus from the band, he has performed on thousands of albums as a session musician.
Amongst these musical contributions are some of the most successful, influential and enduring records of all-time including Michael Jackson’s Thriller. He continues to be Toto’s band leader, a long-tenured member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band, and a solo artist.
Luke’s ninth solo album, titled BRIDGES, could not be more accurately titled. He shares, “I see it as a bridge between my solo music and Toto music. The fact that Joseph Williams, David Paich and I wrote most of the record, and the fact I invited many of the old Toto gang to come and play, co-writers like Randy Goodrum and Stan Lynch brings all this together.
It also proves that most of my old pals and I are still great friends, and I wanted to do a record ‘in the style of,’ as Toto will never record another studio album. This is as close as we will get.”
