On March 31, singer/songwriter Richie Furay will release Hand in Hand, his first solo album in eight years.

Furay, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer thanks to the fact that he formed Buffalo Springfield, is also known for having created Poco – the band that featured Jim Messina, Rusty Young, George Grantham and Randy  Meisner.

The album’s cover, as you see above, features Furay and his wife, Nancy – whom he met at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood years ago.

Said Furay of the album:

“Just when you think ‘it was a nice run,’ you realize it’s not over…especially when one day you wake up and songs are flooding your heart and mind that you know you just have to document and preserve,” says Furay. “‘Hand In Hand’ was that confirmation for me – I’ve learned to say ‘never say never.’ Who knows where this collection will land, but I’m sure glad I get to share these songs with a world that knows music really is the universal language.”  

The music on Hand in Hand was in progress back when Buffalo Springfield concluded its short reunion a few years back. Furay had written some material in hopes of it landing on a new Buffalo Springfield album, but instead it’s been preserved & packaged as Furay’s new solo effort.

Here’s a song called Don’t Tread on Me, as premiered by Ultimate Classic Rock:
