Toto singer-guitarist Steve Lukather will release his eighth solo album, Transition, on January 22nd.

He explains, "I equate recordings to paintings and I wanted to make Transition a big, beautiful album with lots of fine details and shadings and colors. That’s what my favorite albums — Sgt. Pepper’s, Dark Side of the Moon, Electric Ladyland, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road — are all about. So if it’s a sin to make massive-sounding records with huge production values, then I’m going to hell.”

Guests on Transition include Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen and drummer Chad Smith of The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
