For Schmit, known for his legendary work with Poco and the Eagles, last released a solo record in 2009, Expando. As he told Rolling Stone about Leap of Faith, he worked on the material between touring periods with the Eagles.
Schmit previewed the album with a song called Red Dirt Road, take a listen:
Schmit explained to Rolling Stone that the song is about the Hawaiian island of Kauai:
“There’s some rich, deep soil there,” he says. “You have a good chance of growing a plumeria tree by just sticking a branch of a plumeria into the ground. It’s unbelievable. That was the motivation. It’s a song about trying to enjoy your life. You can go about your daily business and see it from sunup to sundown – and see it in the best light possible, too – and then just enjoy yourself.”
It definitely sounds as if Leap of Faith will be a delightful listen for fans …. check out Schmit’s upcoming tour dates below, and stay tuned for additional info and, hopefully, more music!
