From The New World continues with the classic sound Parsons has become known for during his impressive 50+ year career by fusing progressive, symphonic, and classic rock elements. American Idol alumni James Durbin also makes a guest appearance on the album.  Other featured APLP vocalists are long time lead singer P.J. Olsson, Todd Cooper and Dan Tracey.

Alan Parsons began his career at the age of 19 as an assistant engineer at the legendary Abbey Road studios in London working with the Beatles on their albums Let It Be and Abbey Road. Those who recently saw Peter Jackson’s Get Back series got to view vintage footage of Parsons working alongside the Fab Four. Parsons would soon go on to bring his innovative style of engineering to classic albums by Paul McCartney, the Hollies, and Pink Floyd, including their 1973 masterpiece The Dark Side of the Moon.

Parsons would quickly move into the role of producer, winning countless gold and platinum awards with such artists as Pilot, Cockney Rebel, Ambrosia and Al Stewart. Simultaneously, he formed the world-renowned Alan Parsons Project with songwriting partner/vocalist Eric Woolfson, producing a myriad of hits that included Eye in the Sky, Don’t Answer Me, Time and Games People Play. The Parsons/Woolfson duo never toured, but rather concentrated their efforts in the studio.  But after ten studio albums with The Project, Parsons began recording albums under his own name and started to play live for the first time to the delight of his millions of fans around the world. 

In addition to winning a Grammy for the 35th Anniversary edition of Eye In the Sky, Parsons released his fifth solo album, The Secret in 2019. It was his first studio recording in 15 years, and it culminated in a series of worldwide tours.

During 2019, two concerts were filmed by the producing and directing team of Trinity Houston and David Minasian of IM3 Global Entertainment. The NeverEnding Show: Live in the Netherlands was released in late 2021 and One Note Symphony: Live in Tel Aviv featuring the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in early 2022 by Frontiers Records. The Houston/Minasian duo are also responsible for directing and producing the new I Won’t Be Led Astray music video. Minasian also serves as one of the song’s co-writers along with Parsons and keyboardist Kim Bullard who is currently on tour with Elton John.
