JOEY MOLLAND of BADFINGER is in the studio working on a new release. He's enlisted Grammy-winning producer Mark Hudson and Grammy-winning engineer Mario J. McNulty for the album and is excited to share this latest project with his fans.
"I've wanted to make this album for several years now. The songs are solid and quite catchy – many harken back to that power pop/rock sound I began my career with." – Joey Molland
Fans can find ways to be a part of this project through Joey's KICKSTARTER campaign which launched this week (link below).
Joey was a member of Badfinger's classic line-up and the band was one of the original signings to the Beatles' Apple Records label. They had their first hit single with a Paul McCartney penned song, "Come and Get It." Badfinger followed this with their own hit compositions "No Matter What", "Day After Day" (produced by George Harrison), and "Baby Blue." During this time Harry Nilsson placed Badfinger's song "Without You" on top of the charts, and Mariah Carey did the same in 1994. Badfinger's own version of "Without You" was featured in Season 2 of the hit television show This Is Us, which helped introduce the band's music to brand new younger fans.
Badfinger songs continue to be used in many other contemporary TV and film soundtracks. "No Matter What" was featured in the hit film Horrible Bosses 2, "Baby Blue" was featured in the Breaking Bad TV show finale, and "Day After Day" is currently featured in the movie Annabelle Comes Home.
Molland played on John Lennon's Imagine album, on George Harrison's Grammy-winning album All Things Must Pass, and joined Harrison for the Concert For Bangladesh.
Producer Mark Hudson has worked with artists such as Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Harry Nilsson, Bon Jovi, Celine Dion and more.
Engineer Mario J. McNulty has worked with many artists, including David Bowie, Prince and Julian Lennon.
Both are excited to be working on this brand new release.
"So far the rough tracks are sounding fantastic. The hooks, the harmonies and the musicianship... Expect to hear fresh catchy rock songs, with several songs reminiscent of Badfinger's sound."

Additionally, Joey continues to tour, carrying on the legacy of Badfinger. He is thrilled to be hitting the road this fall with Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees and Jason Scheff of Chicago for a special anniversary show, paying tribute to the Beatles' "White Album" which turned 50 last year.
