Dennis DeYoung’s new studio album 26 East – Volume 1, which each ticket holder will receive at Théâtre St-Denis, will be released April 10th on Frontiers Records and will feature the duet The Good Old Days with Julian Lennon. The collaboration came about when DeYoung sat down and wrote the verse and chorus of a song with Julian in mind. Julian heard the demo and said he would be honoured to participate.

The title 26 East represents the birthplace of Styx. 26 East 101st Place was the address where DeYoung grew up in Roseland, on the south side of Chicago.
