Toto Debuts ‘Orphan’ Single From ‘Toto XIV’
You can hear the track in the above video, which combines recent performance footage with other assorted clips to try and get across the song's message that "you're never alone in the world." It's also immediately available to fans who pre-order 'Toto XIV' on iTunes or Amazon.
"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.'
