Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale has team up with Daughtry to cover Journey classic Separate Ways in celebration of the song’s 40th anniversary.

“Chris Daughtry and I have been threatening to unleash a duet for years,” says Lzzy Hale of the collaboration. “What better way to do that than by paying tribute to one of our mutual influences…. JOURNEY!”

“This song is not only part of the Stranger Things soundtrack, but has been my go-to for karaoke for as long as i can remember! I’m so honored to have been a part of this and I hope it makes you smile as big as I did while recording it!” And now we can’t get the idea of Lzzy Hale doing karaoke to this song out of our head.”

Chris Daughtry says, “I’ve always loved the song and I was wanting to do a classic cover and my wife and I were watching the Stranger Things season finale and there’s this incredibly intense scene and Separate Ways was a big part of this scene. It was so moving just the way it was used, it felt so cool and epic and I was immediately like ‘THIS is the one! We have to cover this song.’”

He adds, “Then I was like, ‘How can we make this extra special? What if it was a duet? What if we got Lzzy on it!!??’ Needless to say I was pumped she said yes and I absolutely love how it turned out.”

Relations between in the Journey camp are rather less harmonious, however.

According to court documents filed in the County of Contra Costa in California in November, guitarist Neal Schon is suing guitarist/keyboardist Jonathan Cain over access to the band’s financial records.

“Plaintiff Schon is the leader and original founding member of the iconic American rock band Journey,” states the filing. “This action is brought to turn the lights on, so to speak, and obtain critical financial information Schon has been trying to obtain but has been denied.”

The document goes on to claim that Cain set up an American Express account without telling Schon, and that “millions of Journey funds have flowed through it.”
