On April 18, the band will be releasing Falling In Between, its first CD since 1999, and is already planning a major tour behind the release.
The tour begins on Saturday (Feb. 25) in London, and keyboardist David Paich says the new CD is in many ways similar to the bands biggest album, Toto IV, mainly because were most comfortable being ourselves. On our last album we had our ears too much towards the radio.
So far, Paich likes what hes hearing and seeing from the band but admits hes having to convince them to improvise on the songs because they dont want to be too indulgent.
As Paich puts it, In a concert, I think people want to hear guitar and drum solos from good musicians.
Although Toto plans to play hits like Rosanna and Africa, Paich is willing to consider playing tunes by Xzibit, Ja Rule and Lil Kim at least the tunes featuring Toto samples.
