    Posted: August 02 2011 at 12:56
Metal Mind Productions is proud to announce the release of Doogie White’s solo album - “As Yet Untitled”.
 
This Scottish vocalist came to the attention of the worldwide audience when Ritchie Blackmore asked him to be the lead singer in his reformed Rainbow. They recorded one album together - “Stranger in Us All.” Doogie would go on to sing with Swedish neo-classical guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen for over a six and a half year period, record two albums and tour the world. He also recorded four albums and toured with Cornerstone and is currently the lead singer of Tank, who embark on selected European dates starting this August.
 
Doogie White
 
Doogie White will release his first solo album through Metal Mind Productions in October. The album called “As Yet Untitled” is a collection of 10 dramatic and hard hitting rock songs co-written by White and some good friends he has made over the years on the rock scene.
 
White says, “I always thought my first solo album should be called this. The journalists at Sounds and Kerrang! always had a line that so and so are in the studio recording an album, as yet untitled… Well now I have actually done that. I always like to be part of a band but I found myself isolated for a short while and decided to record some of the songs that I had been working on, while either on the road or back at home. I won’t sit around and wait for the phone to ring. A bored Doogie is a dangerous thing! I gathered the good and the great, companions who had travelled the world with me at various times. Friends who I knew were outstanding players and to a man and one beautiful woman they gave freely of their talents and time. I am forever in their debt.”
 
The list of guest musicians involved in the recording of “As Yet Untitled” looks impressive:
Patrick Johansson (Yngwie), Thomas Broman (Glenn Hughes) – Drums,
Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion), Tony Carey (Rainbow) – Bass,
Neil Murray (Whitesnake), Greg Smith (Ted Nugent), Paul Logue (Edens Curse) - Keyboards,
Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall),  Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt), Phil Hilborne ( Queen Musical), Mick Tucker (Tank) - Guitars
Patti Russo (Meatloaf, Cher) - Guest vocals.
 
The album was recorded at various studios in Florida, Germany, and Scotland but most of the production was handled in Sweden with Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall) at the helm.
 
White: “Pontus and I became great friends through our time with Yngwie. He shone a bright light on the songs with his production. He brought a certain calmness to the madness and made sure that everything that was in the song had to be there for a reason. Even when the hard drive with the initial mixes was stolen, I knew that Pontus could sort it out.”
 

Metal Mind Productions set the release date for the 24th of October in Europe and the 7th of November in USA (via MVD).
 
Full details to follow soon!

The album called “As Yet Untitled” is a collection of 10 dramatic and hard hitting rock songs co-written by White and some good friends he has made over the years on the rock scene. Track “Time Machine” promotes the album and is now available to stream on THIS site. 
 
Doogie White: “‘Time Machine’ was written by Paul Logue and myself. I was having my Dr Who moment. If you could go back what would you change? I try not to have dirt on the back of my shoes or dwell on the past, but I guess we all have moments when we think ‘What if?’ Bridges get burned, some get rebuilt and some just get carried by the river to the sea and float away never to be seen again. But if you could relive that moment, that secret special moment, just for one day, how magical it might be?”

Doogie White: “I am not someone who remembers dreams but I guess I must have them. But this song is about the dreams we have for ourselves.  Paul Logue sent me a huge rolling riff with a really heavy drum rhythm.
 
I wanted to make each verse about the way we feel when our desires or wishes in life veer off in a different path. I was reading the newspaper that a man had killed the girlfriend who had cheated on and then left him.  I guess most of us have felt that way but have never actually acted on the impulse.
 
So I included the horror of the act of slaughter, the whispering of the last words in the bridge and then the remorse.
I guess I would say. The first impulse is probably not the one to act on.”
