Late Night FDL: Orphan
Toto debuts their new ‘Orphan’ single from Toto XIV…
‘Orphan,’ the leadoff single from Toto‘s upcoming ‘Toto XIV‘ album, is out now…
“When you put us in a room, and everybody brings in their pieces, the next thing you know it all fits together,” guitarist Steve Lukather enthused in a press release announcing the single. “Everybody’s performances are top-notch. We are really bringing our best out, forcing ourselves to make personal best choices, what’s best for the music. I’m really excited to hear what people think.”
“We’re talking about a band where everybody is a writer, and everybody is a lead singer, and everybody is a player,” added singer Joseph Williams. “All involved brought this trio to the table where it could just live on its own.”
As previously reported, the 11-track ‘Toto XIV’ is due March 24, and will be accompanied by a world tour that begins in May and is scheduled to last throughout the summer. It serves as the belated follow-up to the group’s most recent collection of original material, 2006?s ‘Falling in Between,’ although keyboard player Steve Porcaro says they’re treating it as the true successor to their 1982 Grammy-winning smash, ‘Toto IV.’
