“This particular record has taken quite a long time to finish for a lot of different reasons,” Lang remarked. "Most of all, I started a family a few years back. Between family time and being out on the road, I really had to pick my spots to fit in recording.”

Over a period of three years, Lang collaborated with producer/songwriter Tommy Sims (who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s Grammy-winning “Change the World”) crafting the album’s elegant rock ‘n’ soul tracks from the ground up.

Textured arrangements, gorgeous vocal melodies, and expressive guitar playing are all found in generous abundance on Fight for My Soul, however, the album defies categorization by a single genre.

“This album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” offers Lang. “Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it's all about. It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing. Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far. Much of what I've experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”

Since the release of his 1997 major label debut Lie to Me, the then 16 year-old Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. Jonny Lang will be on the road leading up to and beyond the release date of Fight for My Soul. In addition to a full North American tour schedule, in October Lang will embark on his first extended European tour in over a decade.
