The new Avalon album 'Stand' to feature a cover of Russ Taff song.

POPULAR American harmony pop group Avalon are set to release their sixth studio album in February. The project, titled 'Stand', is being released by Sparrow Records and is produced by Shaun Shankel, Bernie Herms and Mark Hammond. The album takes its title from the classic Russ Taff "We Will Stand". The original writers of the song, Russ and Tori Taff and James Hollihan, agreed to write a new bridge for the cover of their classic and Russ is featured as guest vocalist on the track.

Said Avalon's Greg Long about the 'Stand' album, "Overall, the theme of this record is that pure and simple joy. Over the past three years we've all been through a lot, but now the transition is done. We're all here now. There's a history here. And we're all encouraged and excited about finding our way together. We've experienced one of the most joyful things you can experience in this life - two babies being born. And so it's like Melissa Greene says, 'Joy has come in the morning.' It's morning. It's spring. The songs are a definite testament to where we're standing now." CR
