Song launches John Oates' yearlong musical journeyGood Road To Follow

June 3, 2013, Nashville, TN…John Oates is taking fans on a cross-genre journey with his latest project, Good Road To Follow. Unrestricted by musical barriers, Oates has collaborated with some of the world's brightest music makers, ranging from acclaimed songwriter/producer/rocker Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, to pop band Hot Chelle Rae, to country music icon Vince Gill.

Oates will release a single-a-month from the PS Records / Elektra Records project.  Fans can subscribe to the series receiving a new download and exclusive content every four weeks, purchase limited edition clothing and merchandise inspired by the songs, and individual tracks.

The lead single "High Maintenance," an exciting rave-up of sound featuring rising pop superstars Hot Chelle Rae, will be released on June 4.  The song was co-written and produced by members of the band and Oates, and is a blend of pop combined with their modern radio friendly sound and production techniques.

"For me it was exciting to feed off their energy, and it took me back to the days when Daryl and I were part of the sound of pop radio," said Oates of working with Hot Chelle Rae. "Not only are these guys talented and dedicated musicians, but also young men of character with a respect for the past and a clear musical vision for their future."

These remarkable collaborative experiences, combined with not having to think about the album as a cohesive collection, gives Oates the freedom to explore his wide range of influences, and there's no limit to the number of songs that could follow. "Who knows, this could be a recording project that never ends," Oates muses. "I'm having more fun now than I've ever had in my career."
