Neal Morse has released a video showcasing his new track JoAnna.

The song features on his new solo album Life & Times, which arrived today via Radiant Records.

Morse says: “JoAnna is a very special song to me. It’s one of those rare times when everything spontaneously comes together – the string arrangement, the pedal steel guitar, the drums and bass so tastefully done.

“It’s one of the best tracks I’ve ever recorded in my opinion. So excited this album is coming out at this time!”

Morse previously announced that he’d play several live shows – and the former Spock’s Beard man has now released details of further performances, adding dates in the UK, Europe and North America.
