Derek Sherinian is keeping himself busy as 2021 rolls on.

Sherinian announced Tuesday, he has started work on his next solo record. He announced through a press release that he is once again working with drummer Simon Phillips on the record and hopes to have the new album out in 2022. That would put the album’s release approximately two years after his 2019 album, The Phoenix.

The Phoenix produced the singles, ‘Empyrean Sky,’ ‘Dragonfly,’ and ‘Them Changes‘ (a cover of the Buddy Miles classic).

Sherinian followed up the release of The Phoenix with a guest appearance on Michael Schenker Group’s latest album, Immortal, which was released early this year. Now the band’s namesake, Michael Schenker will make his own appearance on Sherinian’s as-yet-untitled new album.

Sherinian talked about Schenker’s appearance on the record.

“To be working with Michael Schenker and Simon brings me back to 1980 when I was 13 listening to the first MSG record,” he said

Schenker added to the discussion.

“Derek and myself trading solos, it sounds unexpected and beyond my expectation, absolutely fantastic,” said Schenker.

Schenker is just one of the musicians expected to guest on Sherinian’s next record. More information on other participants will be announced soon.
