Writing/co-writing some of the biggest rock songs in history, including "Don't Stop Believin'," which is the No. 1 digital catalog rock song, as well as mega hits such as "Faithfully," "Open Arms," "Separate Ways," "Who's Crying Now" and many more, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain is also a fan of college basketball and was inspired by the sport to write the new song, "What It Takes To Win." He debuted the song live last week at the NCAA® Final Four® tournament in Minneapolis and is giving away the track to basketball and Rock 'n Roll fans who sign up for it at http://jonathancainmusic.com/what-it-takes-to-win/.
Cain is also readying his fourth new solo album in as many years, More Like Jesus, which releases May 3 from Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution. Billboard broke the story around Cain's anticipated, 15-song album and premiered the track "Kingdom Come Down" as the iconic artist continues to press into his faith with inspired new music.
Last month, Cain released More Like Jesus' title track as the first lyric video and single to digital retailers and streaming outlets internationally (https://the-fuel-music.lnk.to/morelikejesussingle). Immediately dubbed a "Hot Track" by iTunes and added to multiple Spotify playlists, the song was written in response to Cain asking himself what he should pray for and what would be his ultimate New Year's resolution in 2018. "More Like Jesus" became his personal anthem that helped carry him through a huge, 58-city arena/stadium tour with Journey that played to over one million people last year. An integral part to one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, Cain is intent on "walking his life out more in the mind of Christ."
Along with the new music, Cain released his Rolling Stone-lauded, Publishers Weekly-bestselling book, Don't Stop Believin': The Man, the Band, and the Song that Inspired Generations, and has become a sought-after speaker. Featured recently at the Prestonwood Men's Conference in Plano, TX alongside MLB World Series Champion Darryl Strawberry, he will be further featured along with men like Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield at the Better Man Event being held April 13 at the UCF CFE Arena in Orlando, FL.
